“If it is to  serve as a tourist attraction site, they should be  confined to an area so that they don’t pose any threat to the lives of the people,” Sillah emphasized.

He said these alternatives  are essential as it will help to avert these reptiles being pushed into the city by flooding.

He said, “The residents are urged to remain calm and there is no cause for alarm, but they should be careful of the  area, as it is frequently grazed by the owners of ruminant animals such as sheep”.

“They are there in their numbers; that is an established fact and they are reproducing there. Something ought to be done to confine their movement”, said Sillah.
