There was confusion at the Idi Araba area of Lagos on Saturday when an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority on Saturday slumped while controlling traffic.
The official was among those controlling a heavy traffic along Ishaga Road allegedly caused by an event at the Chapel of the Healing Cross, Idi-Araba.
According to Punch, the official, who was busy with the heavy traffic situation under the scorching sun, fell down and began to gasp for breathat about 1:30pm.
His colleagues and bystanders had rushed to pull him off the road and made frantic efforts to resuscitate him. Some of the LASTMA officials were seen pounding his chest, while others poured water on him.
But when his colleagues realised that he was not responding to the first aid, they took him into their vehicle and drove off.
The identity of the official could not be ascertained as of the time our reporter left the scene.
