In Ado Ekiti on Saturday,snows fell from the sky during a rain which began around 4 p.m,reports said.

The residents, mostly students of Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, and the Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti, took snapshots of the white solid substance.

A Punch correspondent, who was a witness, observed the excitement that greeted the incident as many of the residents rushed outside to catch a glimpse of the rare occurrence. The rain lasted for barely 40 mins.

Ireoluwa Akinyemi, a fresh graduate of EKSU said it was a refreshed experience for him. “I have not seen snow in this magnitude before, I'm really excited. It is a lovely experience.”

Another neighbour, Kemi Fadairo, said the size of the snow was the biggest she had seen. “I have been seeing snows fall but these are the biggest I have seen,” she said.

“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,” said Olawale Hafeez, a Laboratory Technologist.

According to them,the rain started by stoning doors with the snow, first causing apprehension among residents, who peeped through their windows to observe if it was an intruder.
