How thunder killed three ‘kidnappers’ in Kwara
Three suspected killers were reportedly killed by thunder strike in Kwara State.
The incident occurred early this week in the agrarian Oro Ago community, Ifelodun local government area of the state.
Footage of a viral video of the incident alleged that those struck by thunder were members of an eight-man kidnap gang that operated in Iwo, Isin local government area about two weeks ago.
The one-minute-13-seconds video clip showed decomposing and charred bodies of three young persons, in their 20s in a bush, with flies all over the scene.
The voice in the short video clip said: “We are members of the vigilante team in Igbomina Kwara. Our efforts against those perpetrating evil and kidnapping people in our area had yielded fruits.
“Thunder struck them dead. Three of them. God will continue to make us successful against the evil doers. We shall overcome them all by the grace of God. Thank you all”.
Another video clip showed some herders, said to be relatives of the deceased in a bush, bemoaning their loss.
They described their deaths as an act of God, adding that thunder strike was from the Almighty God and can never be man-made.
A member of Oro-Ago Development Union (ODU), a sociocultural organisation of indigenes, confirmed the incident.
The source who spoke in confidence added that members of the vigilante team in the area briefed the organisation on the development.
The state Police commissioner, Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi, said the command and its men had commenced investigation on the incident.
