Lady smuggles snake Into PDP Rally

An attempt by a woman to smuggle snake into the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium-venue of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign rally in Benin on Saturday was foiled by vigilant policemen at the gate of the stadium.

Vice President Namadi Sambo, national and state leaders of and several thousands of PDP supporters had converged on the stadium to officially kick-start the election campaign of the party’s candidate in the July 14 governorship election in the state, Gen. Charles Airhiavbere (retd.)

But the timely interception at the main gate of the stadium by policemen at the gate of the stadium averted what could have created a chaotic atmosphere, had the woman sneaked into the stadium with her deadly package undetected.

The snake woman, adorned in purple top and blue pair of trousers, in company of three young men, attracted the curiosity of the mobile policemen screening those going into the stadium when she attempted to jump the long queue.

Upon interrogation, the snake, a cobra measuring about one metre was discovered in a white round transparent plastic container with perforated lid in the hand of the woman who spoke in Pidgin English and Hausa languages.

The security agents however saved the woman from the wrath of the angry crowd who attempted to mob her.

She was however ordered to leave the vicinity of the stadium while still clutching her snake in her hand.

When an attempt was made to take the photograph of the snake and speak with the woman and her companions, she angrily threatened to open and release the reptile if she was not left alone.

  1. A good product sells itself in the market without advertisement. I think PDP should forget about Edo state forever and ever, because Adams is still strongly to repair all damages PDP has caused the state. Smuggling snake or not I am not surprsed,because I know what PDP can do with their diabolism.

  2. It’s a shame a woman with a snake and nothhing was done concerning the situation Nigerians na wa they should have arrested her but nothing was done to her

  3. If truly a woman came to d rally ground wit a snake,why was she nt arrested or is she above d law? PDP…………u pple should take a rest cos all dis are cock nd bull stories ok?

  4. I agree wit [email protected]….i thought the so-called constitution states the principle of equality b4 d she exempted?..4a moment, i dnt jst knw why PDP wont accept d fact dat dey have lost to oshiomhole. A woman came 2d rally of top govt officials and security measures with a snake and she wasnt detained? Who is gonna believe that fabricated story..i think they better tell it to the dogs. The dogs might wanna hear it and not us!!!..and as 4 d reporter dat gave his name, how much are they paying you 2do dis 2 ur fellow man, i mean to oshiomhole..Do you even have a conscience???
