TRAGEDY: Man plunges to death in collapsed elevator at WAEC Office

Tragedy occurred today when a young man named Fatai died after falling off a moving elevator on the eighth floor of the 12-storey building of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) building in Yaba, Lagos.

It was gathered that, Fatai, who had come to the WAEC office to help a relative submit some documents, had stepped out of the elevator when the doors opened midway on the eight floor, thinking he had reached he's destination. Unfortunately he stepped out into open space and plunged to his death. The elevator wasn't functioning well and there was no notice to warn people.

Learnt WAEC officials have expressed regret over his death but according to reports, the family of the deceased have taken the matter to the police and might be suing WAEC for wrongful death.
May the soul of the departed rest in peace!
