If Governor Samuel Ortom has supernatural powers, he would have killed all snakes in the world so that people will be free from snake bites.

He wonders why there has been speculation in some quarters that he rears snakes.

In his efforts to refute the claim on Tuesday, he told newsmen that such reports were anchored on falsehood with the intention to cast aspersion on his personality.

The governor said that though owning a snake farm is not a crime, he has never contemplated undertaking such an activity.

He said he rears poultry, piggery, snail, cattle, goats, and mushroom but could and would not venture into snake farming.

The governor, however, said that he had a scheme were victims of snake bites had been receiving treatment for over 20 years.

He also said that he made arrangement with St. Theresa’s and Rahama Hospitals, all in Makurdi, to treat snake bite victims on his account.

Ortom disclosed that between February and June, he had an outstanding bill of over N30 million to settle adding that none of the victims are related to him.
