A yet-to-be-identified man has reportedly died in Oluyole Estate area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, while queuing to buy fuel at a filling station.
According to The Punch, nobody was aware that the man, who rested his head on his steering, had given up the ghost on the queue until when other customers were honking their horns to alert him to move forward that they realised that he was dead.
The victim’s car, with number plate AKD 878 GP, has been moved to the nearest police station, while his corpse was deposited at a morgue.
The medium quoted a source as saying: “The man’s identity is still unknown. He looked like an Alhaji and was sitting in his car with one leg on the pedal while the other on the ground with his door opened.”
The manager of the station, identified as Mr Joseph, said the case had been reported to the police, and the body taken away.
