A grieving father has reportedly threatened to kill himself after losing three kids he dropped at school this morning in the building that collapsed in Lagos Island today.
The unnamed man who is said to have lost 3 children in the tragic incident told the crowd that the kids only resumed school today after they had been home all through last week because he was unable to pay their fees.
"So this man at the site of this building collapse in Lagos island is threatening to kill himself as he lost 3 of his kids who sat at home all through last week because of school fees only for him to take them to school today, pay their fees and they all die. I'm deeply hurt," an eyewitness wrote on Twitter.
Earlier today, a 3-storey residential building housing a school collapsed at Messy street, Ita-Faji, Lagos Island.
Current report on the tragic incident is that around 40 persons have been rescued and currently receiving treatment at the general hospital in Lagos Island while many others are feared dead.
