Buratai said: "Then sometime, when I was
in Angola, on the last day I was to leave and
come back, I almost stepped on a snake
while jogging along the road and had to
jump over it. In addition to those ones,
there were three or four other incidents
with snakes."
He said some of the interesting moments
he had with snakes motivated him to rear
the reptiles and owning a snake farm
“It was very interesting. They had different
species of snakes. So, I said, ‘It is a good
idea and why can’t I gather all those ones I
have been encountering and keep them?"
Buratai had then queried.
A statement signed by Colonel Hassan
Mohammed, the deputy director, Army
Public Relations, 2 Division said the
conference afforded intellectuals the
opportunity to brainstorm on Wildlife
Conservation best practice.
He said the conference themed: "Wildlife
Management Contribution to the
Diversifying Economy" showcased the need
to balance between wildlife resources
utilisation and conservation for human
sustenance.

He said the conference also hammered on
the urgent need for increased funding and

was also noted.
Also, Omozoje thanked the organisers of
the conference for honouring the Army
Chief with "the well deserved ‘ Fellow
Wildlife Society of Nigeria Award’ for his
contribution to wildlife conservation in
Nigeria."
