The incident occurred near the popular Cattle Market in Asoro Hill, Ekehuan Road in Benin City.

Leftist Osazee Edigin, Public Relations Officer, Edo Civil Society Organisations shared the labourer (Edafe) photographs on social Media on Thursday afternoon.
He said the lightening that preceded the thunder that killed Edafe, displaced other workers as it stroke leaving Edafe dead immediately.
