Na wa o. Earlier today, Nigerian Tribune broke the story a tragedy that struck in Ioryiir village, Tse Agbragba, headquartres of Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue State, when it lost two brothers of the same parents to a thunder strike over the weekend. The brothers were struck dead on the spot.
The victims, according to a source, were returning home from a construction work in the company of one of their brothers and two friends and made a stopover to watch a local football match at LGEA Primary School, Iorkyiir, when the incident occurred.
The two brothers, who were students of College of Education, Katsina-Ala, died on the spot, while the three others, Sonter and Ortiv Torto, as well as Joseph Yarkwan, were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. The father of the deceased, Mr Angwe Torto, expressed saddness over the disaster, which he attributed to the will of God and prayed for the repose of their souls.
Hmm. As he is attributing the death of his sons to the will of God, hope the sons are not paying for an oath he swore to the gods?
