A python, yesterday, swallowed a baby at Okada, Edo State.
Witnesses say the snake, measuring about 10ft long, swallowed a six-month-old baby that was left abandoned outside a house.
The baby was reportedly left on a mat outside, while the mother went inside. A witness, who claimed to have arrived the scene as the snake was in the process of swallowing the baby, raised an alarm. People rushed to the scene and killed the snake, but were too late to save the baby.
