An unidentified man has been found dead in a well at Adisatu Street, opposite Orile-Iganmu Police Station in Lagos state.
This was confirmed by Rasak Fadipe Director of the Lagos State Fire Service, adding that the 28-year-old man was drawn out of the well after he slipped and fell inside.
He explained that the man had a health challenge and that he was using a heavy bucket to draw water from the well when he fell inside and was brought out dead.
Fadipe advised that wells should be dug between three and four feet above water level and that the wells should be covered with lead to avoid people falling inside.
He further advised residents use light buckets to draw water from the well instead of heavy ones, and urged that the fire service be contacted immediately when anyone mistakenly fell inside a well.
