Man falls while sleeping from storey building, dies

What was expected to be a short nap became a passage to death for a spare part dealer at Ile Oniyo, Ita Merin in Ilorin, Kwara State on Friday.

The deceased identified simply as Dauda reportedly died after falling from a two-storey building in Ilorin, the state capital, where he had gone to have a rest.

According to The Punch,
the deceased was a dealer at the Jengbe Spare Parts Market in Ilorin and the scorching heat inside his apartment was what pushed him out to the top of the building to rest before he met his untimely death.

A colleague of the deceased, who identified himself as Alfa Abdul, said the deceased recently completed his apprenticeship and was managing with another colleague in the market before the incident happened.

He said, “The house is a three-storey building but there is a place where people relax and sleep to enjoy breeze as people no longer sleep in their rooms because of the heat in town as a result of the dry season.

“When he returned home, he went there to sleep as usual. Unfortunately, during what is now suspected to be a periodic limb movement disorder, he fell from the place where he slept to the ground.

“They tried to rush him to a hospital, but he was already dead. He has since been buried according to Islamic rites.”

One of the zonal chairmen in the market, who gave his name as Baba Musa, confirmed the incident on Monday.

“Dauda just celebrated his freedom from his master in this market; he was gentle and obedient. We will miss him, but Allah knows best,” he said.
