Sick Female Passenger Dies In Toilet At Mmia, Lagos


SAN FRANCISCO, February 18, (THEWILL) – Tragedy struck at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos on Wednesday morning as a middle-aged female passenger billed to travel on Etihad Airways died in the toilet.

While the cause of her death is unclear as at press time, reports say the deceased was about traveling for medical treatment abroad when suffered a bout of pains which compelled her rush to the toilet. She however gave up the ghost while at the public convenience.
