Thunder strike has reportedly killed three suspected kidnappers in the agrarian Oro-Ago community in the Ifelodun local government area of Kwara state.
It was gathered that the incident, linked to the efforts of local vigilance team in the Igbomina Kwara axis aimed at checkmating security challenges in the area, happened three days ago.
In a viral video on the incident, it was gathered that the victims of the thunder strike were suspected members of an eight-man kidnap gang, who reportedly operated in Iwo community in the Isin local government area of Kwara state about two weeks ago.
The one-minute-13-seconds video clip showed decomposing bodies of three young persons, in their 20s, already burnt beyond recognition in a bush, with flies all over the scene.
The voice in the short video clip said: “We’re members of the vigilance team in Igbomina Kwara. Our efforts against those perpetrating evil and kidnapping people in our area had yielded fruits. Thunder strike struck three of them dead. God will continue to make us successful against the evil doers. We shall overcome them all by the grace of God. Thank you all.”
Also, another video clip showed some Fulani herders, said to be relations of the victims of the thunder strike, in a bush, bemoaning their loss. They ascribed the incident to an act of God that cannot be questioned by anyone, saying that thunder strike is from God and can never be man-made.
A source among the Oro-Ago Development Union (ODU), a sociocultural organisation of indigenes of the area, confirmed the incident, saying that members of the vigilance team in the area briefed the organisation on the development.
Speaking on the incident, the state Commissioner of Police, Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi, said the Command and its men had already commenced investigation on the development.
The Police boss said the veracity of the incident would be ascertained after diligent investigation.
