A man believed to be in his fifties has been found dead at Orile Iganmu bus stop in Lagos on Tuesday after he slumped.

NAN reports that the victim who was believed to be ill suddenly slumped and died in the early hours of Tuesday.

Mr Yinus Olayiwola, a trader close to the scene, said that the deceased was seen shivering on the spot at about 6:30 a.m.

The deceased’s situation was worsened by an early morning drizzle, he said.

“It seems the deceased was asthmatic. Though, the early drizzle worsened his condition, his life may have been saved if he got prompt medical assistance,” he said.

Bamidele Adejoke, another resident, stated that the deceased was not a mad man but normal passerby and urged individuals to take their health seriously to avert sudden death of that nature.

He expressed disappointment that relevant agencies were yet to evacuate the corpse over eight hours after the incident.
