Plenary was disrupted at the Ondo State House of Assembly yesterday, as terrified lawmakers scampered for safety when snakes fell from the ceiling of the hallowed chamber.
According to a staff of the Assembly who criticized the deplorable condition of the Complex while narrating the incident to reporters, three snakes fell from the Chamber’s roof at the commencement of plenary.
“Today three snakes fell from the Chamber’s roof when the sitting was about to commence and this made all the lawmakers to run for dear lives.
“The snakes escaped from the scene, some of the lawmakers were shaking as if they wanted to die.
“I can’t remember the last time this complex was fumigated. Everywhere around is just too dirty that sometimes one begins to wonder how lawmakers cope and sit in such dirty environment”, the Assembly staff said.
The Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Bamidele Oleyelogun, called for indefinite recess as their security could not be guaranteed following the shocking incident.
