"I was marvelled seeing this farmer holding this live snake his trap caught up this morning. This is my first time of seeing someone holding a live snake in reality apart from movies," he said.
Some netizens suggested that the snake would be used for pepper soup by those who caught it.
A month ago, a group of Nigerian men captured a snake and prepared it to be eaten.
Snake meat is said to taste like chicken and fish and just like most fish, it has a single long spine and few bones.
