Another Building Collapse Kills 4 Siblings In Lagos


A three-bedroom bungalow located at Orisha Street, Isheri, Magodo area of Lagos on Saturday caved in yesterday during a heavy rainfall killing four siblings of the same mother.

Our correspondent gathered that the deceased whose names were given as Sylva Odiah, 24; Sayo Odiah,15; Clinton Odiah, 11 and eight year-old Endurance Odiah were children of one Mr. Gowin Odian who hails from Edo State.

A witness who identified himself as Samson Asowata, and was overheard speaking the Bini language, said their mother was also inside the building when it collapsed and was rushed to a nearby Mayflower Hospital, where the mother of seven was rejected for treatment because, “They said there was no card. May be they saw her critical condition and they think they won’t be able to handle her treatment. But she was immediately taken to Tabasco Hospital”.
