My sister’s three children under the rubble, cried woman

•My friend, with seven children ran mad after school collapse

A weeping woman, Mrs. Aishat Onilenla, said her sister’s three children were still trapped under the rubble of the collapsed three-storey building.

She said: “My sister’s three children are trapped in the collapsed building. My sister was at the scene, but she had been dragged home. We don’t want her to see the corpse of the children. We don’t know whether they would be brought out alive or dead.”

Onilenla gave the names of the pupils as Rodiat, Mariam and Tope.

She added: “As we are now, we don’t know our fate. But we are hoping in God; that He will bring them out safely.

“A friend of mine, who has seven children in the school, ran mad after she got the information. I don’t know how she is going to survive it. It is too much for her to bear. We have seen a lot on the Island. Government should also be blamed for the collapse building, over its failure to carry out demolition of some marked buildings.”

The angry residents alleged that some of the government officials were using the marked building to extort landlords.

The Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Wasiu Esinlokun, who visited the scene, said that a notice for demolition was served on the building on Tuesday, a day before the .building collapsed
