Man Dies After Falling Off Elevator At WAEC Building, Lagos

A man identified as an employee of the Odi-Olowo Local Council Development Area, Lagos, died on Wednesday after falling off a moving lift on the eighth floor of the 12-storey building of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

The spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, Mr Joseph Jaiyeoba, who confirmed the incident to newsmen, said that the mangled body of the deceased was recovered from the ground floor of the building.

The victim, Fatai was said to have stepped out of the lift when the doors opened midway on the eighth floor.

Fatai assumed that the lift had reached its destination, and he stepped into the air, fell off from the eight-floor till he hit the ground. 

However sources gathered that the elevators were not in proper shape.

The remains of the deceased had been deposited at the mortuary while police investigation continued into the matter.
