A distressed mother who lost two children in the collapsed building at Lagos Island committed suicide. The incident occurred after she was informed of the death of her children.
It was garnered the deceased gave birth to both children through Caesarean Section (CS).
When our correspondent visited her house at Gambari area of the Island, her husband refused to speak.
However, some neighbours said the woman bought a bottle of insecticide called ‘Sniper’.
“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.
“By the time people got there she was already dead,” a neighbour spoke to our source on the condition of anonymity.
Sympathisers, however, thronged their house to condole with the husband and family members.
Hundreds of teachers and students from different private schools yesterday marched on the site of the collapsed building.
They also called on the government to pull down every distressed building on the Lagos Island to check further loss of lives.
