During Saturday’s convention, a supporter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) collapsed and died.
The supporter was on his way to Eagle Square, the convention’s location, when he slumped and died.
According to one of those who knew him, the dead first complained of dizziness before collapsing.
Many of the party’s members ran to help him, but it was in vain, according to a Daily Trust correspondent on the scene.
Some of the fans, led by some security officers, afterwards covered and carried the corpse away.
