A male applicant died on Tuesday during the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) screening for new applicants into the organization in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
Segun Martins who is the FRSC Sector Commander confirmed the death but refused to divulge more details.
The details of the victim could not be immediately ascertained but it was garnered that he died shortly after completing a two-kilometre race.
He was said to have dropped his tally and passed out.
He was immediately attended to by medics from the FRSC and later admitted to the army clinic at the Chari Megumeiri Barracks but he died 30 minutes after admission.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Martins while expressing condolences to the family of the deceased, said the incident would not result in the suspension of the recruitment in Kogi.
The FRSC commenced the recruitment of 4,000 people out of the 324,000 shortlisted applicants with the assessment holding from September 24 to 29.
