A man died in Lagos yesterday Friday 1oth of May after he was crushed to death by a mast which fell off a 2-storey building.

The man, a 52-year old roadside trader identified as Adeolu Adeleke had reportedly gone to protect his wares from the heavy rain and winds but was crushed by the mast as he made his way back to his shade.

One of the people who witnessed the incident and a very close friend of the deceased said Adeleke, also known as Baba Ibeji, was warned not to enter the rain because of the strong wind but he refused. “I told him to forget about the goods since the wind was blowing strongly, but he said he would hurry down there quickly not knowing that he will not return,” he said.
