Thunderstorm Kills 18 Kidnappers

The alleged killing of 18 kidnappers by lightning in Adamawa, has been confirmed by the State Police Command.

Suleiman Nguroje, who is the spokesman of the State police command, on Saturday in Yola, said that the social media reports that the thunderstorm had killed 18 kidnappers in Toungo Local Government Area of Adamawa, were not true, adding that the alleged killing was not in Nigeria but it occurred in neighbouring Cameroon village called “Pawati”.

The attention of Adamawa State Police Command was drawn to a publication titled: ‘Cross Border Banditry, Thunderstorm kill 18 Kidnappers iin Toungo, Adamawa Border Community.’

“In order to keep the record straight such incident never happened anywhere in Toungo, Adamawa State as alleged but in Pawati Forest, somewhere in Cameroun Republic.

“It’s not in dispute that Toungo Local Government is bordering with villages under Cameroun Republic which a times criminals comes in to Border Communities and commit crimes.

“But with this border closure, measures had been taken by the Command to prevent such,” the statement read in part.
