About 36 cows belong to some herdsmen were reportedly struck dead at a mountain top of Ijare community in Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo state when the cows reared to the forbidden mountain.
It was gathered that the herdsmen took to their heels after the 36 cows they took to graze on the mountain without permission from the community leaders, were reportedly struck dead by the thunder.
The incident reportedly occurred on Saturday, September 21.
The cows the herdsmen took to graze at Owa mountain, which is reportedly reserved for Kings, were scattered all over the mountain by the thunder strike.
A community source who confirmed the incident said the Fulani herdsmen incurred the wrath of their gods by desecrating the sacred groove, which is forbidden in the town.
