There was excitement in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday, March 25, when residents witnessed ‘snowfall’ during the rain that started at about 4 pm.
Some students of Ekiti state University in Ado-Ekiti and the Federal Polytechnic in the state took pictures of the white solid substance which fell from the sky lasting about 40 minutes.
One of the students, a fresh graduate of EKSU said:
I have not seen snow in this magnitude before, I’m really excited. It is a lovely experience.
Another witness, Kemi Fadairo complimented the size.
I have been seeing snows fall but these are the biggest I have seen.
At first, residents were scared thinking it were intruders because the rain came with force with the pelts hitting doors and windows.
We thought it was somebody playing pranks, so we peeped through the window to see who it was to know whether to shout for help.
It was then we discovered it was snow falling from the sky and hitting the door hard. I also joined in taking photographs.
A Laboratory scientist Olawale Hafeez said.
