Lagos Island building collapse: Mother commits suicide after news of the death of her two children


A woman has reportedly committed suicide after she received news of the death of her two children  in the building collapse which occurred  on Wednesday March 13th in the Ita Faji area of Lagos state.

According to Sahara Reporters, the traumatised mother gave birth to the two children, who were between the ages of six and four, through Caesarean Section (CS).

She is said to have bought a bottle of insecticide called ‘Sniper’ and drank all of it.

“Nobody knew what she wanted to do with the Sniper. But a few minutes later, we saw the bottle beside her where she was sleeping, and we found out that she was already dead,” a neighbour, who preferred not to be named, said.

Sympathisers thronged their house to condole with the husband and family members.

Meanwhile, a mother, Yetunde, whose son was injured, has been too traumatised by the sight of the boy lying critically on the hospital bed, that she has not sat down for over nine hours.

She was seen moving from one corner of the Lagos Island General Hospital to the other in search of the prescribed drugs and other needs demanded by the doctors.

The boy survived the injuries and his two legs are in Plaster of Paris (POP).
