A snake bite scare in primary and secondary schools in Delta has caused some level of panic in the state, especially in the capital, Asaba.

This is coming after the emergence of a viral video showing over 60 pupils of a private school in Asaba getting marks on the back of their palms after performing the alleged initiation.

Parents out of fear hurriedly pick up their kids from school after the news.  Following this disturbing development, the Delta State government has ordered a clampdown on cultism and cult-related activities in schools across the state

Meanwhile, the police in Delta State have dispelled the insinuation that the ‘snake bite’ games played by primary school pupils are an initiation into cultism.
