The residents of Ekpiken Close, the pastor and his family are still in a great shock of the extraordinary experience that happened  last weekend.

The man of God had  left the house for a meeting with his father-in-the-Lord, leaving his household behind. Unknown to him, they have been living in the same house with a 19 –year-old python, which is 20-metre long.

Further revelations made it known that the huge snake feeds on dogs, fowls, rats and lizards for long without him and the children knowing they had a strange co-dweller. However, when he left the house on the fateful day, the snake decide to come out of its hideout and use one of the children for its next meal.

Amba explained to Niger Delta Voice saying: “Two of my children were home alone when they saw that a something like a machete was piercing through the ceiling so they ran out of the house. Fortunately, one of our members was coming to the house at that time, and he is the one, who inquired from them what the matter was and they told him what they noticed in the ceiling.”
