Graduation ceremonies began on 25th September 2018 for the graduating class of 2017/2018. The two-day event was however interrupted by a serpent on 26th September, who caused a scene of mayhem and havoc for the family and friends gathered to join in on the celebrations.
On 26th September 2018, just as the Vice-chancellor of the University of Cape Coast and other dignitaries were processing from the graduation auditorium for a break, the mysterious serpent sprung up from the nearby bushes.
The unwanted intruder’s sudden appearance caused all present, including the vice-chancellor to flee the scene.
Calm and normalcy were only restored after a young man managed to smash the snake’s head with a stone. That did not, however, prevent the gathered crowd from raising questions as to how this snake managed to spring up only at that particular point during the 2-day ceremony.
Some were of the view that the arrival of the snake had spiritual connotations.
Others thought such a bushy area could definitely harbor the mini serpent, especially since the adjoining bush had been cleared up only a few days prior to the graduation ceremonies.
