They arrived at the hotel in Aladinma with a box that was secured with a padlock but when the box was opened, a live snake was found in it.
The boys were immediately apprehended and eyewitnesses claim they confessed that they had been to Amagwa in Rivers state where a native doctor made some marks on their bodies and filled the box with US Dollars before they continued on their journey.
However, when they got to Imo state and the box was opened for a search at the hotel, they were shocked to find the foreign currency had been replaced by a live snake.
The boys were taken to the Aladinma police station where their presence attracted a large crowd on Wednesday morning, January 26.
