“When we got to the truck garage on Tuesday morning, around 8:30 am, we saw a young man; he was just wearing some dirty black shorts, standing and resting his head on the wall of the school where people park their trucks, thinking that he was still sleeping.
“He looked rough and unkempt. Someone went to tap him so that he could wake up and leave the place but when he touched him, the man didn’t move. Tapped him again, but he didn’t move.
“It was on observing him closely that we found out that the guy had d!ed while standing. He didn’t even look like someone who had d!ed.
“Immediately, someone went to the police station in Ojodu to report. Then, the police came and took his body away.”
