Civil servant killed by thunder strike

A civil servant, Salami Adekunle, aged 47, was on Thursday struck to death by lightning in Oro, Kwara.
The deceased was a staff of the Registry Department of the College of Education (RDCE), Oro, Irepodun Local Government Area of the state.

It was gathered that the deceased was leaving the institution’s examination office for the Registry Department at about 10 a.m. when the incident happened during a downpour.

The institution’s Public Relation Officer, Mr Adesola Adewoye, who confirmed the incident, said that all efforts to rescue the deceased proved abortive.

Adewoye said, “The staff and management swung into action immediately the deceased was struck, but all our efforts to resuscitate him proved abortive.’’

He however, described the deceased as an easy going, loyal and dedicated staff who will stop at nothing to impress his employer.

“Our prayer is for God to give the family, friends and associate the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss”, the official added.

Staff of the institution were seen in group discussing the development.

Some traditional religion worshippers were said to have later performed some rites on the corpse of the deceased before it was taken away for burial.
