Nigeria, 12 pupils escape death as school building collapses

Vanguard gathered that the portion of the building on the premises of Saint Paul’s Anglican Primary School, Igborosun, collapsed at 10 a.m during class work.

An eye-witness said the victims were later rushed to Badagry General Hospital, where they are being hospitalised for medical treatment.

According to sources, some of the pupils had fractured limbs and injuries on their bodies.

At press time, Vanguard gathered that three of the pupils were in critical conditions, while others were said to be doing well with minor injuries.

The witness lamented that the building that collapsed was the only strong structure in the school compound.

The incident, according to reports, threw the entire community into panic, as parents stormed the school in search of their wards.

A man said: ”The prevailing peace in the school was immediately gone, forcing many to run for dear life. Most parents who heard of the incident rushed to the school to ascertain the well-being of their wards. Many parents, who could not locate their wards, rushed to the Badagry General Hospital.”

Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Police Command, Mr. Samuel Jinadu, when contacted on phone, said he was yet to get the report from the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Badagry Division....

As Africa begins its silent roll, it drops and skews sideways a bit, separating along the Mediterranean and down through the Red Sea, thereby allowing the lower part of Africa to pull toward the Indian Ocean. It is known that the Red Sea is pulling apart, as is the Rift Valley in Africa, but Nigeria is stressed also, likewise being pulled apart. Thus the sudden and completely unexpected toppling of a building in Lagos.
