An unidentified man has reportedly died in Oluyole Estate, in the Oluyole Local Government Area of Oyo State, while queuing to buy fuel at a petrol station in the community.
The incident happened on Thursday and according to newsmen, no one 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 pressing their car horns to alert him to move forward that they realized that he was dead.
According to newsmen, the victim’s car, with number plate AKD 878 GP, had been moved to the nearest police station, while his corpse was deposited in an undisclosed morgue.
A source stated that “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, who asked to be identified only as Mr. Joseph, said the case had been reported to the police, and the body was taken away.
All efforts to reach the state Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, proved abortive as he could not be reached for a reaction when filing this report.
