Published

About 23 cows have been killed by thunder in Ekiti state, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The incident, which occurred at Okeowa Eluju , a farmstead in Iloro-Ekiti, Ijero Local Government Area of the state, has caused apprehension among local residents.

The deafening thunder was accompanied by a downpour recorded in parts of the state in last couple of days.

The owner of the dead cows, a Fulani Herdsman, Abdulkadri Kadiri, while speaking on the development said he was devastated by the development.

According to him, the incident was a strange occurrence.

“I went to farm after about six hours heavy downpour on Monday morning, only to discover that 23 of my cows had died

” After careful observation, I found that there was no trace of bodily injuries on the dead cows . I want to believe it is an act of God since I did not offend or quarrel with anyone,” he said.

Kadiri, however, said he had not experienced such incident in his 35 years of of business.

The Regent of the community, High Chief Joseph Alofe, while acknowledging the development, described the owner of the dead cows as an amiable, gentle and peace loving herder.

The community leader, who also described the incident as strange to the village, called on government and well meaning individuals to assist the herder, to revive his business.
