The Igbo towns that don’t kill pythons

It is forbidden to kill pythons or “eke” in the towns in Idemmili North Local Government Area and Idemmili South Local Government Area, Anambra State, Igbo Land, Nigeria.

This is due to the fact that pythons are traditionally considered to be sacred in those areas. 

If you kill a python in Idemmili, you will be required to organize a proper funeral for it. That means hiring canopies, cooking food and serving drinks for guests among other things.

So, even if you like snake meat, don’t hunt pythons in Idemmili.
