In Ekiti: Thunder strikes kill 15 cows



On Saturday evening, Thunder reportedly struck dead 15 cows at the outskirt of Ikogosi Ekiti community, Ekiti West Local Government area of Ekiti State.


The incident, according to Asaoye of Ikogosi, Chief Ayo Ademilua, was a natural occurrence, which he said was strange in the town.

Speaking with journalists via telephone on Sunday, Ademilua revealed that the incident happened at the Ikogosi Warm Spring site along Ipole -Ekiti road.


Ikogosi warm spring has been a notable recreational and tourist centre, where warm and cold spring converge.

The chief said the thunder was said to have struck during a torrential downpour that started around 4:00pm and ended at 6:02pm.

Also speaking on the novel incident, the Onikogosi of Ikogosi Ekiti, Oba Abiodun Olorunnisola , alleged that the herders have been making spirited efforts to sell the cows to residents, describing this as dangerous to the health of his people.

The monarch said he has reached out to his colleague at Ipole Ekiti, Oba Oladele Babatola, on the need to warn their subjects against consuming such desecrated meat.

The monarch, however, called on the government to evacuate the carcasses of the cows to prevent the spread of communicable diseases in the two towns. Dailypost
