Daredevil kidnappers met their waterloo recently in Adamawa State as thunderstorm struck them in the forest of Toungo Local Government Area while waiting for a ransom payment of N20m.
The bandits were said to have gathered after collecting over N20m from their wealthy victims at a remote village between Koncha in Cameroon and Toungo in Nigeria.
The bandits were said to have been killed by thunderstorm when they gathered to share their ills gotten money.
