Reports reaching NAIJ.com say a Nigerian man was almost attacked by a scorpion today in his office and after he killed it, he took photos.
Scorpions are potentially deadly arachnids and the androctonus scorpion is the most dangerous specie. It is said to be able to kill a human being in minutes.
With knowledge of this, it is no wonder that when one Nigerian man came face to face with a fat, black scorpion in his office this morning, he took no chances.
He made sure to kill it and then posted the photos online and cracked a joke to make light of his near death experience.
He said: "On getting into my office this morning, I found this black and hair scorpion. How it got in, I do not know. Rumour has it that if you for stung by this tormentor, s*cking on an old woman's chest is the only remedy. Don't know how true that is. Thank God I got it first."
What would you do if you see this scorpion beside you as you prepare for bed at night?
