    Ah! Nigerians….y r we always sentimental? Boko haram perpetrators are Nigerians, but d pple been discussed here are from Bangladesh, nd someone here is happy in reference to bokoharam…that’s inhuman, unreasonable, and so ignorant to think. I personally have witnessed (with my two eyes nd conscious mind ….nd not hear say) a case where lightening struck two pple to death in a church, nd infact these two pple are pastor’s wife and son(to worsen the whole thing the pastor invited the idolators to do their funeral….imagine!). These pple were playing ludo in an open shed while it was raining and thunder struck…as educated pple what does that explain? If You don’t know, I’ll explain …scientifically, the electrons in lightening are to be absorbed by the earth, in cases where there’s obstruction, the lightening destroys what it strikes upon that serves as it’s hinderance to be absorbed. Incase of shiny surfaces esp glassware, it stricks the glass, breaks it, nd the glass refracts the rays and electrons to the objects around….that explains the death of these two pple (they were playing a game that is covered totally with glass, nd the glass is placed in between them.) Also we have something called conductors that are mostly placed on buildings in order to properly channel the electrons from lightening into the earth, so as to prevent d buiding from cracks. In a situation where pple are on their feet, in the rain and there’s lightening ….there’s a probability that the lightening uses the person as a conductor to conduct it’s charges to the earth, nd you what that means (onitohun malana straight ni….may God save us from that) that’s y pple are always cautioned from standing and loitering around while it rains esp ones with heavy lightening and thunder. So wake up and educate yourself, and stop being sentimental it’ll get you know where ….educate yourself first before picking on others. These pple are dead and God willing, owing to the conditions, time, and state of their death, they’ll be rewarded beautifully till eternity. Y not work on earning a pleasant eternity rather than hate on those that are already with God.
