Gusau - A snake on Tuesday disrupted the passing-out parade of the NYSC Batch "A" at the Orientation Camp at Tsafe in Zamfara.
The snake, according to eyewitnesses, might have come from one of the dilapidated structures at the camp and could have been in search of shelter or food.
The eyewitnesses said the snake tried to make its way to the platform where special guests at the occasion were seated during the course of the ceremony.
Some of the corps members, as well as some of the special guests, took to their heels to avoid the reptile.
However, some of the corps members ran after the snake to kill it, using sticks and their boots.
Earlier, in her address to mark the end of the camp, the scheme’s Co-ordinator in the state, Mrs. Ruth Bakka, had urged the corps members to be of good behaviour.
She also urged them to be security-conscious during their 11-month primary assignment in the state.-
