A mother, who lost her two children in the Wednesday March 13 building collapse in the Ita-faji area of Lagos State, has reportedly committed suicide after she received news of the death of her children.
The woman who gave birth to the two children, who were between the ages of six and four, through Caesarean Section (CS), was 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 and we found out that she was already dead.
“She saw no reason for living again. The children were her main source of joy. And when they were tragically gone, she decided to go too. The tragedy was just too unbearable,” a neighbour, who preferred not to be named, said.
Sympathisers thronged their house to condole with the husband and family members.
