This is coming few days after a Nigerian man died at the Ikoyi Passport office of the Nigerian Immigration Service, while seeking his Nigerian international passport.
According to Daily trust, the incident threw both Immigration officers as well as other passport seekers into confusion as to what to do next.It was gathered that the applicant had arrived the passport office at about 7.am accompanied by his wife.
It was also learnt that the couple were asked to wait along with others till 9.am when the office would be open to members of the public. It was gathered that the man became restless around I0.am, when he started complaining of severe heat and discomfort. He later requested to use the rest room.
An eye witness who spoke on the condition of anonymity said: “He was walking up and down complaining that he should be attended to as he and his wife arrive the passport office before other applicants the officers were attending to. We told him that even though he came early, our official resumption time is 9.am, but he would not listen. Along the line, he said we should show him the toilet and we showed him.
“After about 20 minutes, his wife became worried that he has not come out from the toilet, but we calmed her down and our toilet attendants were asked to monitor the man. After about 40 minutes, we knocked several times and he did not respond. We tried to open the door, but it was locked from the inside .The mistake was that we should had forced the door open, but we were warned by our superior not to break the door until the police arrived the scenes.
“The police later arrived and forced the door to the toilet open. What we saw was gory .He had removed his clothes and he was sitting on the stool, but he was dead. He died few minutes before we opened the door, maybe he would have survived if we had rushed him to the hospital. ”
