This Is Unbelievable! See 5 States In Nigeria Where Snake Is Worshiped Like God
Man Lifting Snakes
There are so many practices in the world that is part of some people’s customs and traditions.
Some of the customs are what I will discuss in this article.
In some part of Nigeria, it is so surprising that some people worshipped snake just like God, some do not worship it but believed is like a companion to them so they pamper them and protect them from danger.
For instance, when I was in Bida in Niger state, the people don’t kill the snake, they believe any type of snake is a companion, so is the story of the five states I will tell you in this article.
However, the Nigerian states where snakes are worshipped is not the only place in the world, in the Benin Republic, there is a place where the snake is worshipped, the temple is called Quidah.

There are so many other places in the world, especially India, China, Japan and many other countries.
The following are the Nigerian states where snakes are worship and how it is practised.
1. Nembe, Bayelsa:
In this part of Bayelsa state, snakes are seen like a special deity that must be worshipped, thus they don’t harm snake talkless of killing it.
If the snake enters their domain, they will call it by name and then take it to another safe place where the snake can be comfortable.

2. Idemini, Anambra:
In this Nigerian state, the place called Idemini is popular for its love of snake, and many people in this community grew up with big pythons as their deity.
In this community, they called snake Eke Idemini, they don’t call it by its name.
If a snake mistakenly bites someone they will call the name and the snake would hiss and leave, nothing of any sort would happen to the person afterwards.
3. Ngbidi, Imo:
The practice of snake worship in Ngbidi Is the same things like that of Idemini in Anambra.
Here there are several shrines where snakes are worshipped, the worship of the snake over there is more serious than that of Idemini.
4: Machina, Yobe:
In this part of Nigeria, snakes are seen as one of the family who is a descendant of the king.
As a result, snakes have every right to mingle with anybody just as people walkabout and another thing is that snakes are entitled to be treated as a descendant of the king.
5. Agbodah, Kwara:
The story of this place is different from the rest, according to a BBC journalist who is from this place, he made it clear that there is a historical background of this place and the story was about a king who turned to a python and went to the bush to stay.
Ever since then, the people believed that any snake that enters the town is a descendant of their king.
So in the land they dont kill snakes, talkless of eating it.
