FEAR gripped students of Novena University, Ogume Delta State, in Nigeria, after a python invaded a female hostel in the school.

The python was found early morning on the bed of an unnamed female student, creating panic among students.

"We saw a big snake that slept overnight with us on the same bed in one of the female hostels.

"The snake crawled into the hostel and found its way to the bed. One of the female students who slept in the room screamed, which drew the attention of other students. As I speak, they have vacated the hostel," a source said.

The public relations officer of the institution, Mr Emmanuel Odishika, confirmed the incident.

He said, "The community has a sacred snake and from time to time students run into it, but it does not hurt anybody.

"The university is over 16 years old, founded in 2005, and since then, the snake never hurt anybody. The snake is not harmful.

"We usually give students orientation whenever we admit new students; older students don't panic because they are aware of it. We cannot restrict the snake's movement."

Odishika said there was no overgrown grass on the school premises, adding that the snake did not require weed to visit the school.

Getting pregnant, aborting for photoshoot

A Ghanaian lady claims some women now get pregnant and abort after four months to "look good" in their birthday photoshoot.

The lady who was identified as Felicia Sedinam Gardner, made this bizarre allegation when she called into an online programme recently and the audio recording has caused quite a stir on social media.

She said: "Maybe their birthday is in four months or in three months or maybe there is an occasion they want to look extremely good physically, they intentionally take in. They intentionally get pregnant.

"Some will wait until the third month, that is the ending of the first trimester and then they would come for healthy abortion.

‘‘Some of them go for any pills, which worsens the case.

"These things have both advantages and disadvantages but the only advantage is that it makes your body really sumptuous, like you would look yummy…Generally their body grows bigger because of the over production of the oestrogen and progesterone.

"These two hormones help in the growth of these physical features. When you get pregnant, these hormones increase in production. It helps your boobs to come out, it helps your shape."

Gardner added that some people when they get to the third month, they would go for safe abortion.

"After the safe abortion, you would be given an appetite stimulant or appetite booster, maybe some blood tonic that would boost your appetite to make you eat more to maintain that shape for some months."

Pastor runs mad after church confession

A Kenyan pastor has gone mad after confessing to his church members that he exchanged their destinies for supernatural powers.

The Pastor, during a church service confessed to his members that before he could command evil spirits and even have a spiritual eye to see the spiritual world, he was asked to make a sacrifice and so he used the destines of his members.

He said that as a result of what he has done, no member in the church will be rich regardless of their background.

"Church members I'm sorry, I exchanged your destines for powers," the Pastor confessed during church service.

However, he said he cannot keep the secret anymore because he feels the church members deserve better and would want them to have their freedom and benefit from their hard work. After making this serious confession, he instantly went mad and his junior pastors rushed him off the pulpit.

Some of the members immediately left to their various homes while some stayed behind to watch the drama unfold.
