A male meat seller who has yet to be recognized collapsed and died while attending to a customer on Branco Street in Lagos State’s Mafoluku neighborhood.

The event occurred on Monday about 5 p.m., while the deceased was attending to a customer in the community.

According to an eyewitness who identified himself only as Tunde, the deceased had completed selling the meat and was waiting for payment when he collapsed.

“The man is a regular meat hawker in this area, and he was hawking along the street as usual when a woman called and asked him to sell meat for her,” he explained. When he arrived at the woman’s house, he brought down his meat and negotiated for a while. He later sold the meat to her when they both reached an agreement.

“It was just as the woman was about to pay him that he collapsed to the ground.” That’s how the wife swiftly alerted the authorities.”

Tunde went on to say that attempts were made to resuscitate him on the scene.

“Later, some people attempted to resuscitate him, but all efforts were futile.” His body had been on the floor for about 30 minutes. “Some of the residents later hired a commercial bus to transport his body to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead,” he continued.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the occurrence.

“The man collapsed and died.” He most likely had an underlying health concern. There was no foul play. The corpse has been deposited in the mortuary,” the PPRO said.
