A woman identified as Adedayo Adedoyin has cried out for help after losing one of her twin daughters to the Lagos school building collapse.
Devastated Adedoyin begged the state government to ensure that her surviving child does not die.
Recall that on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, a 3-storey building collapsed at the Ita Faaji area of Lagos Island, leading to the death of some school kids.
According to Adedoyin, her extended family had four children in the school that was located on one of the floors of the collapsed building, her twins and her husband sister’s two children.
She added that she had no inkling that the building would collapse, noting that it was recently painted.
“They’ve been going to the school for three years and the children have never told me of any issue in the school,” she said.
Adedayo said her surviving six-year-old daughter was receiving treatment in the hospital.
“She’s the twin sister of the one who died. The one who survived is injured on one side of her body from the neck to her foot,” she added.
Meanwhile, about 50 persons, including pupils and other residents of the building, have been rescued from the rubble by emergency workers and taken to the Lagos Island General Hospital, Massey Children Hospital, Lagos University Teaching Hospital and the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
