The Ondo State Parliament was taken by surprise on Thursday, July 25 when a snake burst onto the chamber floor from the roof during plenary.

The spokesperson for Lawmakers in Ondo State Olugbenga Omole said the house was about to commence legislative activities when a big snake ran out of the chamber which disrupted the sitting and made everyone hastily run for their lives.

Omole expressed his worry over the development and promised that the legislature building will be fumigated to avoid recurrence, even though the snake did not bite anyone as some of the assembly staff quickly came to their rescue to kill the snake and burn it.

” When we were about to enter the 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 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.” Said Omole
