A businessman and foreign exchange dealer, Alhaji Suleiman Yerima remanded in prison custody following an on-going trial by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been reported dead.
Yerima died last Friday during the end of Ramadan fasting prayers on the Muslim Praying Ground in Kirikiri prison, Lagos.
Officials told PRNigeria that the businessman suddenly slumped while prayers were ongoing and was subsequently rushed to the medical facility by prisons officials and the visiting imams, where he was later pronounced death.
Although results of the autopsy on the corpse was still being awaited, Yerima is suspected to have died of natural causes as preliminary examinations showed that he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest, which led to his slumping during the prayers.
