VIDEO: Residents shocked as python is killed in Lagos estate

Some residents of Dolphin Estate, Lagos State, have been left in shock after a python was found and killed in the area.

An X user, #Realolaudah, shared the story on Monday and stated that residents have been left confused and afraid following the discovery.

The post read, “Since last night, when a python was killed in Dolphin Estate, there are so many questions begging for answers, anxieties, uneasiness, and fear amongst some residents. A snake this big!

“We decided to dig further to get a narrative that made sense as to why it happened.

“The property is occupied by a known young man. He is not around, but his driver is around, and he sleeps in the BQ.

“The next house to this particular house keeps pet dogs. The dogs are many as they reproduce. The owners of the dogs have noticed over time that whenever the dogs gave birth, some of the puppies just went missing without any trace. Out of 8 puppies, they would see four puppies.

“Behind those stretch of houses in the Estate is the SSS Quarters with large grounds, bushes, and a canal.

“The driver was in the BQ with a weak ceiling where the snake came to and fell. It immediately curled up and raised its head at the center in readiness to attack.

“The owner was notified that there was a snake in his house that no one could kill because it was ready to attack. The owner called his friend in Parkview Estate, who has a shotgun with a license. He came from Parkview, shot, and killed the snake.

“It was also reported that several cats that loitered in ceilings have been missing.

“Reasoning: The snake came to fetch the cats and dog puppies to eat. It is not the first time, but last night became its last.
Its destination is the next house where the puppies are kept.

“Lesson: The houses in the Estate have been unoccupied for so long, and the compounds are overgrown with shrubs and looking forest-like. They will harbour reptiles like this. We MUST care about our environment.”
