Thunder Kills 18 Suspected Kidnappers In Adamawa

18 suspected kidnappers were struck dead by thunder at a forest in Adamawa state, after allegedly sharing money obtained from their victims.

AllNews understands that the incident occurred within the Toungo Local Government Area of the state, a town on the Nigeria-Cameroon border.

According to a source, the bandits obtained over N20 million from victims between Koncha in Cameroon and Toungo in Nigeria.

“The bandits, it was gathered, had collected over N20 million from their wealthy victims between Koncha in Cameroon and Toungo in Nigeria,” a source in Toungo said.”

“Angered by incessant attacks by the kidnappers, community leaders and victims consulted a native doctor to send thunder after the bandits. They met their Waterloo when they gathered to share the money,” the source said, adding that local hunters could not retrieve their corpses nor their money inside some bags as well as their weapons.

Confirming the incident on Friday, the Adamawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, said Friday it occurred within Cameroon soil near the border with Nigeria.

“We heard that the victims engaged the services of a native doctor, but it was said to have occurred in the neighbouring Cameroon, which is not under our jurisdiction,” Nguroje said.
