The noise and panic without a clinical approach to reviving that man is enough to cause more problems. It's sad honestly. This shows how bad we are as country, and individual when it comes to health awareness. Nobody will care to audit what happened. It will be taken as 'one of those things'. This avoidable event will only stop when people are held accountable for their actions or inactions.

How come nobody among the onlookers could initiate CPR? The rally organizers (labour union) cannot have a standby ambulance with paramedics in case of unforseen emergencies like this? May be the outcome would have been different.

  Prior to his death, the NLC State Chairman, Comrade Emmanuel Bankole had gathered the striking workers and informed them that the Friday’s meeting of the union’s leadership with the state government was deadlocked and that members should be prepared to continue with the strike.   Bankole disclosed that he decided to move out of the meeting to address the gathering of workers that the state government was not likely to accede to the workers ‘ demands on the strike, hence he chose to leave the venue of the meeting to address the workers. But, the secretariat became rowdy when Ogunjimi slumped in the midst of the crowd; he was reportedly rushed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, where he was pronounced dead. But while Bankole was addressing the workers, the highly charged and angry looking comrades, who had earlier alleged that their union leaders had sold out, became uncontrollable and in the process, some facilities at the NLC secretariat were destroyed in the ensuing violence that later erupted. The labour unions had declared the strike over what they termed the “pathetic plight” of workers in the state.   A detachment of the operatives of the State Security Service (DSS), earlier drafted to the NLC State Secretariat at Lemme were angrily sent back by the agitating workers, who insisted that they could handle the situation by themselves. They revolted against the leaders when the idea of calling off the strike was mooted, as they insisted that the strike must continue. . Contact:.
