LAGOS MAY 25TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, on Saturday, May 25, 2024, narrated how two women were struck dead by lightning during rainfall in the FESTAC area of the state.

Hundeyin disclosed this on his X handle, adding that the women, who were living in a shanty built under high-tension wire at First Avenue in FESTAC and were indoors during the rainfall, were killed when there was lightning that accompanied it.

He added that when the lightning struck them dead, it also razed the shanty where they were living in, destroying belongings.

Hundeyin wrote: “May their souls rest in peace. Somewhere on First Avenue, FESTAC, two women remained indoors during the downpour yesterday. Lightning struck, electrocuting them instantly and causing fire outbreak.

“They lived in a shanty built under high-voltage wires.”

Many residents of the state have been warned to desist from living or working under high-tension electricity installations but despite the warning, some people have defied the warning and continued to live there.
