At least three persons on Monday collapsed during the military parade to mark the 2022 Democracy Day.
The individuals, believed to be members of the different units of the military, apparently succumbed to the pressure of work after standing for several hours before the commencement of the exercise.
The colorful parade, presided over by Muhammadu Buhari, was well underway when a bit of commotion broke out from behind one of the parties as some security and medical personnel were seen scrambling stretchers to move those who had collapsed for urgent medical attention.
They were rushed to the tents provided at the square for medical personnel where physicians successfully resuscitated them.
It was not clear whether they were able to return to their duty beats for the continuation of their duties.
The parade was performed by four units including the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Police with a combat display by the Nigerian Army Female Corps as well as a traditional dance display representing the main ethnic groups in the country.
