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.
