Thunder Strikes Cows dead in Ondo

More than 19 cows have been struck dead by lightning at Iba in Ifelodun local government area of Osun state, according to NAN.

It was gathered that some herdsmen were rearing their cattle on the field around Apala area of the town when the strange incident happened.

Adekunle Oyedeji, the monarch of the town, has therefore asked the herdsmen to burn all the dead cows in order to avoid an epidemic outbreak.

In a statement by Gbolagunte Bamigbola, his media aide, the monarch said; “The people of Iba, have over the years been living harmoniously with Fulani natives living in our domain,” he said.

“The death of the cows belonging to the Fulani cattle rearers living among us was a natural occurrence occasioned by a thunder that struck in the town.”

Gboyega Oyetola, the governor of the state also sympathised with herders, describing the incident as a sad one.

Speaking through Biodun Ajisefini, his special adviser for agriculture and food security, Oyetola said; “We are indeed sad about the unfortunate incident. Lightning is a natural phenomenon that we have no power or control over. The traders who suffered this loss are part of us, not strangers. ”
