Corps Member Warns Colleagues Against Killing Pythons In Two Anambra Lgas by UDOKABESTLUV(m): 10:22am On Jun 22
UDOKABESTLUV, Reporting From Anambra.

A Serving Member Of The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Anambra State, Osasere Erhahon, has warned corps members in orientation camp against killing pythons in Idemili North and Idemili South Local Government Areas of the State.

The People of Idemili Regard the python as representative of their deity, the custodian of customs and traditions. People who kill pythons are always advised to perform befitting burial rites for the reptiles.

Osasere, who is serving in Idemili LGA, gave the advice on Wednesday, June 22.

"Those of you who will be running the service in Anambra, let me bring it to your notice that there are two local government areas called Idemili North and Idemili South LGA of the state where it is forbidden to kill pythons. Yeah! You heard me right, they forbid killing it. If anyone does, you will conduct a burial ceremony (just like human burial) for the snake," He Wrote As Sighted By NaijaCover.

"That's the local government area I'm currently serving in. The attached picture shows the baby python I saw close to my lodge window few days ago while the other was the one I saw couple of months ago. Note, the indigenes don't worship python but they conserve them and they are harmless snakes. They will teach you the origin of the custom in the camp. They will post some of you here. God bless Anambra. God bless Nigeria"

The info is true. If you kill Idemili python,the people will hold you responsible and if you do strong head, they will show you vawulence Koro Koro . I am from Anambra too and it is not only in Idemili that killing of python is forbidden. In my own local government,Ihiala, it is forbidden. It may interest you to know also that there are towns in Anambra that kill and eat python,it is Umunze town. It is not a state thing,rather depends on the town

It’s going to backfire on them sooner or later when all their pets and livestock’s start disappearing or one snake gets too big to the extent that it becomes a problem

If you go to Rome, you behave like Romans

Most communities in Anambra and even other parts of SE don't kill python and they don't eat the meat but they kill snakes

Python is defenseless animal that doesn't hurt anybody, it will only creep around and go on its way in search of warmth

Other communities like Awka does not kill monkeys because of their tradition and it should be respected

I was born and brought up in Awka-Etiti of Idemili South LGA, Anambra state. This is true, you dare not do that in these local governments

When the indigenes see a python they can place their arm so the python will climb on it and they carry it to the nearest river or inside a bush.

They call it Nwadiana (only Igbos will this, someone help me with translation)

You can scare it away, but killing it, you don buy market be that

Obviously some of you who are Igbos don't go home. Neither are you aware of your culture.
This snake is what is called Eke idemili, in Idemili North & South. I came across them when I was supervising a project in Alor and Abatete.

Let me also state that it is not limited to idemili alone, in some part of the state capital, Awka, you dare not kill a snake, especially in Amawbia.

The same thing in Njaba LGA in Imo state
