Snake Bite

In Nigeria, there have been numerous snake scares recently, prompting most people to be especially cautious of their surroundings.

It all started when a young woman sitting on her toilet seat in Abuja was bitten by a large snake.

Some people have reported seeing snakes in their restrooms since the incident. Others have reported seeing the frightening animal in their houses.

This has caused widespread panic among Nigerians, although we rarely hear of individuals dying from snake bites in Nigeria, as we do in other nations such as India.


People have become more aware of their surroundings, particularly the restroom, as a result of their dread of snakes. While there are actions you may take to prevent a snake from invading your house, there are also steps you can do if your efforts fail and a snake strikes you.

Check these tips

  • Leave the snake alone: Do not attempt to harm it. This will almost certainly not end well, as snakes are quite swift, and you will have squandered valuable time that could have been spent saving yourself.
  • Don't panic and don't move: While it's easier said than done, it's in your best advantage to stay calm because quick movement will hasten the venom's spread. Stop moving and take a few deep breaths once you're convinced you're no longer in danger. People seldom die from snake bites if they follow basic first-aid procedures. You can ask for help from wherever you are by yelling or making a mobile phone call.

  • Apply pressure on the bite's location.
  • Snake bites are common in the limbs, legs, feet, hands, and arms, so use a pressure immobilization bandage until medical care arrives.
  • Washing the snakebite site: Do not attempt to wash the bite location with any liquid. Also, keep clothing off the bitten mark because any movement can hasten the venom's spread.
