A snake lover has been strangled to death by his own pet python after it wrapped itself around him under surreal circumstances.
The man, identified to be Mr. Samed, was on his way to a friend’s baby naming ceremony bash when the incident occurred in Damongo in the Northern region of Ghana.
Luck, however, eluded him when the python, generally described to be a friendly pet became untamed after a minor accident.
The now cold-eyed python couldn’t differentiate between its owner and onlookers who tried to rescue him as it became sore towards anyone who draws closer to it.
‘Poor Samed was strangled to death by the python after it girdled itself around his whole body.
Sources alleged that Samed uses the snake as a fountain of magical powers to charm money for his clients, a practice which is common among a section of the youth.
