The Chairman, House Committee on Information, Hon  Olugbenga Omole, while speaking  expressed worry over the development and declared that the legislative building needs to be fumigated  in order avoid a recurrence.

Penpushing further reports that, Omole,  said the snake was later killed and burnt, adding that, nobody was  bite following quick intervention  of some staff of the Assembly, recalling that, that, ‘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’, he said.

‘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.
