A professional plumber on social media has shared photos of a snake and massive monitor lizard he killed at his work site.
The snake killed
The man in question went ahead to share a detailed report about his encounter with the reptiles. Read the report below:
“I am a plumber. I have a job going on a construction site in Ajah where I am posting this from at the moment. My workers and I got to the site this morning to start working, one of the labourers who I asked to bring a sewage pipe screamed out like Sango’s thunder, I rushed to see what happened, and it was a snake crawling out from one of the 4 inches pipes seen in the pictures. I immediately grabbed a big stone and hurled it at the serpent’s head, before I could bend down to pick more stones, other workers on the site have scattered its head in a split second.
“Just 5 minutes later I heard the same guy shouting ‘obe’ ‘obe’ (Obe is SOUP in Yoruba). I went to see what was happening again and he had killed a monitor Lizard. Everyone wanted us to smoke the rare reptile for some garri consumption later in the afternoon, but right now as I type this a man is negotiating to buy the giant lizard for N2,500. The labourer’s daily stipend is N2000. Selling it for N2,500 wont be bad. But I have told the man to check back in one hour.
“But I am thinking, since I am the boss on the site, should I just buy it for like 2k and we all roast it for garri for lunch. What do you think?
“Thanks to my Gionee M5 plus for the clear pictures”
