Tragedy struck when a Nigerian Air Force woman, Lance Corporal Bercy Ogah, was bitten to death while using a restroom in her flat at the NAF Base on Bill Clinton Drive in Abuja.
The incident reportedly happened on Friday shortly after Ogah, who was attached to the Defence Intelligence Agency, was allegedly bitten by the snake .
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that Ogah had driven her children and a relation staying with her to her neighbounr’s house before visiting the Nigerian Air Force hospital, where she gave up the ghost.
PLATFORM TIMES further gathered that
reptiles and other wild animals were common in the base.
The source said, all kinds of wild animals are found in the base. People who stay there see snakes a lot.
“The houses in the base were fumigated recently but hers was left behind because she was not around. The snake must have hidden in her toilet.
“After the snake bite, she took her child and a relative staying with her to her neighbour before she drove to the NAF hospital for treatment.
“When she got to the hospital, it took a little while before the anti-venom vaccine was administered to her. Apart from the vaccine not being readily available, I learnt that the person in charge of the drugs was not on duty.
“I don’t know the name of the snake, but they said it was very poisonous. Also, the part of the body the snake bite made her not survive, among others issues.”
The spokesperson for the Nigerian Air Force, Edward Gabkwet, could not be reached as of the time of filing this report
