Lightning kills about-to-wed man killed in Edo

By Our Correspondent

A middle-aged man, popularly called MC, has been reportedly killed by lightning on Aibanegbe Street, Off New Lagos Road, Benin City, Edo State.

The incident, which happened during a downpour on Wednesday, also left several others injured with lacerations in their hands and legs.

An eyewitness, who identified himself as Ajibola, said, “The victims ran to the point where Okada riders stay to pick and drop passengers when the lightning struck and the man died while others sustained injuries.

“The young man was popular on our street and I was told he recently went for introduction ahead of his coming marriage. My last born was close to him because he was a friendly person. It was because of that people on the street said Okada riders should not work today.”
