“I witnessed the most intense and scary thunder strike a few minutes ago here in Nasarawa.

“I was at the Nasarawa Garage getting a car fixed when I suddenly heard a loud rumble and bright light. A lot of people actually ran not knowing what it was.

“Shortly after the thunderous event, a gathering formed under a tree where it was discovered that three individuals had tragically lost their lives due to the lightning strike.

“This is the first time I’m seeing something this terrifying in my whole life.” Mabudi recounted.
