There was a mild drama on Thursday at the Ondo State House of Assembly after three snakes fell from the roof of the chamber during plenary.
The lawmakers were forced to run for safety, leaving Thursday’s proceeding disrupted .
Reacting to the incident the chairman, House Committee on Information, Olugbenga Omole expressed concern over the development and assured that the legislative building would be fumigated to avoid recurrence .
Again, we were at the plenary when the ceiling caved in beside the speaker.
When we were about to enter into plenary, a big snake just ran out of the chamber which disrupted our sitting and we had to hurriedly leave the chamber
We are about to seat again today when a ceiling caved in directly where Mr. Speaker was sitting, the whole house was agitated and when we look around we saw the damage the termite had done to most of the woodwork in the ceiling.
At that point, we had to call ourselves and adjourned the sitting. That chamber is no longer safe for legislative business and because of that, we decided to adjourn indefinitely. The house will be going on an indefinite recess.
We need to intimate the state governor Rotimi Akeredolu about this development and we have decided to meet him on this, he said .
The chairman also said that proper fumigation would begin at the complex on Friday ahead of a general renovation.
