•Snowflakes.

There was excitement in Ado Ekiti on Saturday when snowflakes fell during a rain which began around 4 p.m.

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

A 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 minutes.

A fresh graduate of EKSU, Ireoluwa Akinyemi, 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 snow fall but these are the biggest I have seen,” she said.

The rain started by peppering doors with hailstones, which first caused apprehension among residents, wondering what was happening. (New Telegraph)
