A passenger, identified as Ademola Adeleke slumped and died at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Wednesday morning.
Eyewitnesses said the deceased had yet to check in when the incident occurred.
He was said to have received help from a passenger who tried to revive him by pumping his chest before Port Health officials arrived.
Adeleke was later rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, where he was confirmed dead.
The General Manager, Corporate Communications, FAAN, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, confirmed the incident, saying the passenger slumped as soon as he stepped into the terminal.
She said, “It was so sad. He was probably going for medical check-up before he slumped and died, so we could not confirm which of the flights he was supposed to join.”
