Tragedy struck in Ado Odo Ota Local Government Area, Ogun State, as thunder struck during heavy rain and killed a food vendor indentified as Mrs Fagbayi, injured four others in Ejila Awori Comprehensive High School.
The tragic incident occurred on Tuesday at about 1pm, according to an eyes witness who pleaded anonymity.
The witness said Mrs Fagbayi who was the wife of a popular politician in the area, brought food to the school as usual and was under the dinning shed with other food sellers.
“It was like a mystery to me I have heard and read about thunder strike but I have never witness it before until yesterday when I witnessed the food vendor’s body taken from the shed to the school compound. The most surprising thing was that she was the only one killed by the thunder strike among others that were in the shed,” she said.
According to a member of the deceased’s family, Mr Adele, “The Sango deity worshipers have been consulted because they are the only one that can touch the body if we don’t want such death to ravage the area again. They have told us they would do some sacrifice for three nights before anyone can bury the dead body, but we are still pleading with them if they could do it in one day so that the students that are writing exam and those that learn will be able to return to school.”
It was gathered that the students of the school who fled the compound after the incident on Tuesday have proceeded on holiday till further notice, as their parents prevented them from coming to school.
According to one of the parents, “The incident is a bad one and enough to scare people because the person would have either been a victim of Sango deity.”
Also, the four others injured were said to have regained their feet but were prevented to talk to the media.
