Passenger Mysteriously Dies At Lagos Airport
Death ended Ademola Adeleke’s dream of traveling outside the country.
The deceased was scheduled to travel out of the country on the morning of Wednesday, November 7 when he slumped and died at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
Eyewitnesses said the deceased had yet to check in when the incident occurred.
The proposed passenger, who arrived at the airport early in the morning for his flight, slumped and started gasping for breath at about 5.30am.
He was said to have received help from a passenger who tried to resuscitate him before Port Health officials arrived.
An eyewitness, however, stated that Adeleke did not respond to treatment even after the health officials tried to revive him by giving him oxygen.
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria’s ambulance arrived at the scene later and took him to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, where he was confirmed dead.
The General Manager, Corporate Communications, FAAN, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, confirmed the incident.
“He was probably going for a medical check-up before he slumped and died, so we could not confirm which of the flights he was supposed to join,” Yakubu said.
