In the evening, at about 5pm an intense whirlwind gashed through the peaceful town, home to more than 10,000 people. Buildings were hit, forcing much destruction and throwing rooftops into the sky, causing widespread damage, thereby, forcing many to be homeless.

In an on-the-spot assessment carried out by Kakakioodua Media Agency, (Our correspondent was conducted round by Prince Wole Oginni), not less than 10 buildings were completely deroofed and 50 more in various degrees of damages, the citizens of Iwoye-Ijesa were devastated, leaving many to search for emergency housing and assistance to rebuild.
