According to Sahara Reporters, the traumatized woman who gave birth to the two children, who were between the ages of six and four, through Caesarean Section (CS), 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. By the time people got there she was already dead,” a neighbour, who craved anonymity, 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 things demanded by the doctors.

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


  1. Their parents shouldn’t be left alone this trying period. We easily move on in Nigeria with phrases like God will replace. Family and close friends should try to accommodate these families during this period. My heart goes out to them.

  2. Hello, the Lagos State Government is NOT DOING ENOUGH to help the parents affected by this building collapse. To reduce the post collapse effects and further suicides by more parents and families of the affected victims, Lagos state Govetnment is more than capable and should QUICKLY convein meetings of the parents/families, educate and assist them in whatever way possible to reduce further calamities.

  3. You saw her with sniper and you kept quiet knowing what she’s passing true chaii…. who ever that saw this woman with sniper and did nothing will suffer in life crying chaii

  4. Very painful indeed, I sincerely sinpatize with all the families involved in the building collapse incident.
