Thunderstorm kills three in Ijebu-Ode

Thunderstorm struck three young men dead after a downpour of rain in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State at about 3:00pm along the former Gateway Hotel Annex in Ijebu-Ode.

The victims are yet to be identify.

It was reported that the victims had taken shelter under a building where the thunder struck them.

Another sympathizer, who simply identified himself as Ridwan, said he knew one of the deceased whom he described as a motorcyclist from Imomo-Ijebu in Ijebu North East Local Government Area.
A source, who was among the sympathizers, said the corpses of the victims were still on the ground awaiting traditional rites.

While describing the incident as “not ordinary,” the source stated that death by thunderstorm is usually as a result of punishment for a wrongdoing.

Some policemen who visited the scene left without removing the corpses as well as a bag allegedly belonging to one of the deceased.
