A large mysterious snake prevented lawmakers of the Ondo State House of Assembly from sitting on Wednesday, Sahara Reporters has just learnt.

It was gathered that the big snake dropped from the decay roof of the hallow chamber of the Assembly complex on Thursday  that the ‘strange incident’ caused chaos among lawmakers.

The incident also forced the lawmakers of the Assembly who had planned to sit for the day to immediately go on a recess as there was pandemonium in the Assembly.

Olugbenga Omole, Chairman of the House Committee on Information in the Assembly confirmed the incident to journalists in Akure.

“There was pandemonium at the Assembly on Wednesday over the appearance of snakes in the hallow chamber.

“The truth is that with the deplorable condition of facilities at the Assembly complex, snakes freely enter lawmakers’ offices and the Hallow chamber” he said.

Rt (Hon.) Bamidele Oloyelogun, the Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly confirmed the incident in a telephone interview with Sahara Reporters.

Oloyelogun said the incident has prevented the state lawmakers from sitting at the hallow chamber of the Assembly.

“The incident happened here at the hallow chamber of the Assembly yesterday (Wednesday).

“We were about to sit at the Assembly when the large snake dropped from the ceiling and we all ran out.

“Also today, we were about to sit for parliamentary job when the ceiling started caving in and we feel that we cannot take this again.

“Just look at the ceiling we have in the Assembly and our offices, they are not in good shape and many of it have started falling.

“So, the best thing is that this place (Assembly) should be renovated by the governor. The building is due for renovation and we have called the attention of the governor to it.

“We cannot continue to stay here or risk our life inside this diplapitated structure while making laws. Most of the buildings here have started in” he said.
