2 year old man was struck to death by a mast from a two storey building on Friday in Lagos. The incident happened on the popular Marina Street. He died instantly.
The victim identified as Adeolu Adeleke and also known as Baba Ibeji, went out to protect his wares from the rain when the incidence happened.
One of the people who witnessed the incident and a very close friend of the deceased said Adeleke 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.
Adeleke according to his colleagues in the area was described as a gentleman with the fear of God and who goes about his business quietly and diligently.
