Three alleged kidnappers were killed by a lightning strike during a thunderstorm in the peaceful rural Oro Ago town in the Ifelodun local government area of Kwara state.
According to reports, the occurrence was made possible by the spiritual might of the Igbomina vigilante team, which uses both conventional and unconventional methods to combat insecurity in the region.
According to a viral video, the incident happened roughly three days ago, and the state’s police have started an inquiry.
The victims of the lightning strike were purportedly suspected members of an eight-man kidnapping ring who allegedly operated in Iwo, in the Isin local government region of the state, according to the video.
The one-minute-13-second video clip showed decomposing bodies of three young persons, presumably 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. Thunderstrike struck them dead. Three of them. God will continue to make us successful against the evildoers. We shall overcome them all by the grace of God. Thank you all”.
Reacting to the incident, the state commissioner of Police, Mrs. Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi, said that the command and its men had already commenced an investigation into the incident.
The police boss said that the veracity of the incident would be ascertained after diligent investigation
