The building was said to have collapsed on him and was rushed to hospital where he was confirmed dead.

According to a community leader, Ibrahim Kilani, the torrential rain which started after 7 pm was accompanied by heavy hailstones.

On his part, the Chairman of Ikare Akoko Elders Forum, Elder James Oladetohun who sympathized with the victims called on the government to come to their aid.
