The ancient city of Badagry is known for its tourist attraction and historic sites. The city has so many landmarks and so many cultural artifacts that people troop to the place at least to see the first storey building in Nigeria, missionary cemetery, relics of slave chains and the slave port.
Same could be said for Basirat Akinlade who said she has been selling snake pepper soup for more than 12 years.
While agreeing that so many people are scared of snakes, Akinlade says she uses it to her advantage sometimes.
Another lover of snake meat, Rotimi Akeredolu, agreed that where he comes from, eating snake is not popular but that hasn’t stopped him from enjoying it anytime he comes across it.
