One of the school children who died in Wednesday’s Lagos school building collapse actually told his mum in the morning that he didn’t want to go to school on the day, being his birthday.

A three-storeyed building including the Ohen Nursery and Primary School, Ita Faji, Lagos Island, collapsed on Wednesday morning, killing at least 12 people as of yesterday’s count.

When SR visited the scene, families and neighbours of the victims were heard giving accounts of what might have been done to avert the incident.

One parent who became an emergency worker overnight told Sahara Reporters: “I have rescued my five-year-old son, he survived; now I’m here to help others but the LASEMA officials are making things very difficult and slow.”

He added that another child killed in the accident might have been alive had events gone another way.

Today is the boy’s birthday; he said he didn’t want to go to school because it’s his birthday but his mother insisted. He was among those that first died.”

Another said: “A woman couldn’t afford fees so she came to beg in the morning but the proprietor turned her back with her child; she has just heard what happened and is thanking God.”
