A man, identified simply as Mr. Edafe, has died after he was struck by lightning during a downpour in Benin City, Edo State.

The deceased was reportedly working at a building site around the Cattle Market in Asoro Hill, on Ekehuan Road, when the rain started. He took refuge in a nearby uncompleted building.

The thunderbolt was said to have displaced all who took shelter in the building, striking and leaving Edafe dead instantly.
