Some residents of Breman Asikuma in the Asikuma, Odoben, Brakwa District in the Central Region have been thrown into a state of fear following the discovery of a python in a room in broad daylight.
According to reports, a little girl found the reptile after a heavy rainstorm on the afternoon of Sunday, April 18, 2021, raised an alarm for help to kill the python.
However, people around including men were afraid to go near the python.
Eyewitnesses told the media that, it took a courageous woman in the area popularly known as Yaa Asantewaa to kill the python by striking its head with a stone.
The Assemblyman of the Ekumfi Electoral Area in Breman Asikuma, Hon. Evans Okyere Jackson expressed shock over the incident saying pythons are found in bushes and not homes occupied by people.
“I am shocked seeing this here because I know this is normally found in the forest and can’t tell if it is for money rituals but it’s in the hands of God”.

“Though it has been killed, we have elders in the town who’ll perform rituals before we bury it because if we joke with it, anything can happen. So however way we can to bury this python for peace to prevail we will do”.
