A 47-year-old civil servant, Salami Adekunle, was on Thursday struck to death by lightning in Oro, Kwara. It was gathered that the deceased was until his demise a staff of the Registry Department of the College of Education, Oro, Irepodun Local Government Area of the state.
The deceased was said to be leaving the institution’s examination office for the Registry Department at about 10 a.m. when the incident happened during a downpour.
The lifeless body of the deceased, who hailed from Ilesa in Osun was sighted lying at the spot of the incident preparatory to spiritual cleansing. Mr Adesola Adewoye, the institution’s Public Relation Officer, who confirmed the incident, said that all efforts to rescue the deceased proved abortive.
“The staff and management swung into action immediately the deceased was struck, but all our efforts to resuscitate him proved abortive,’’ he said.
He 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,” he said.
A correspondent, who visited the scene of the incident, reports that 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.
