The body of a yet-to-be-identified man has been recovered by men of the Lagos State Police Command by the rail line in the Ijora-Badia area of the state.

It was gathered that passers-by in the area saw the man lying motionless beside the rail line.

It was learnt that security agents, including neighbourhood guards and policemen attached to the Ijora Badia Police Division, were contacted to rescue the man.

It was gathered that as the policemen were about to take the man to hospital, they found a container of an insecticide by his side.

This discovery was said to have aroused the suspicion that the man might have consumed the substance in the container.

The victim, who was rushed to hospital for urgent treatment, was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said some good Samaritans rushed the victim to hospital, where he was pronounced dead, adding that the corpse had been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.

Elkana said, “On August 1, 2020, around 9am, we received a piece of information that a male adult with no means of identification was found lying unconscious by the rail line in Ijora-Badia; an insecticide container was found on him, hence it was suspected that he fell into unconsciousness after consuming the substance in the container.

“He was immediately rushed by sympathisers to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His corpse has been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy; further developments will be communicated.”
