Ghaddafi Saleh, a 25-year-old man, has died in Kano.
The young man was on Wednesday confirmed dead in Kano State shortly after he was rescued unconscious from a gutter.
The spokesman of the Kano State Fire Service, Saminu Abdullahi, who confirmed the sad incident via a press statement, said, ”Today being Wednesday 20 July 2022, our formation received an emergency call at about 07:26 am from one Malam Abdulkadir.
“He reported that a man fell into a gutter at Tarauni, Zaria Road, by veterinary hospital.”
Following the incident, Abdullahi said firemen on emergency duty swung into action and arrived the scene at about 07:34 am and found a man of about 25 years old, identified as Ghaddafi Saleh, inside a main gutter.
According to the statement, the victim who was rescued unconscious was later confirmed dead, and his remains handed over to a Police Inspector, Bashir Abdullahi, of Zaria Road Police Division.
The cause of the incident was attributable to the downpour of last Sunday, during which the victim fell into a major drainage and got trapped.
