A mild drama occurred at the Ondo State House of Assembly during a plenary session yesterday. The session abruptly came to an end when snakes fell from the ceiling. There was pandemonium in the hall as the lawmakers ran for their dear lives.
Some lawmakers tried their best to kill the snakes but all their efforts proved abortive, as they reportedly escaped.
According to reports, one of the snakes fell right to the centre of the senator’s seat, leaving everyone shocked. A staff of the house also complained that the situation of the building is dilapidated and needs proper reconstruction, as there are hollows where snakes can easily hide.
Meetings have been rescheduled to hold at later dates and till arrangements are made to repair the building in order to avoid such future occurrence.
