A man has met his untimely death after he was attacked and bitten by a venomous snake believed to have been sent spiritually to accomplish that task.
The man, Anthony Oregon has since been buried but close friends and family members are yet to fully grasp the strange circumstances leading to his death.
According to Shadrack Okpomhe on Facebook, someone called the deceased to inform him that pigs were feeding on his crops. However, on getting to his farm, he saw a snake instead.
Instablog9ja, where we sighted this report said the deceased immediately tried to go back but the snake flew at him and bit him on the leg. Although Tony managed to kill the snake, he didn’t survive the poisonous bite.
The deceased was laid to rest on May 26, after a funeral mass at Saint Philomena Catholic Church in Edo State.
