I am afraid to go to school again – 3yrs old boy who survived the Lagos school building collapse


Three-year-old, Kabiru Sasore, who survived the school building collapse at Ita Faji on Lagos Island, has said he is afraid to return to school.

Master Kabiru was rushed to the hospital after the incident,  and was discharged last week Thursday after he was certified healthy enough to return home. His mother is said to be in a private hospital at the moment where she is being treated for shock.

Kabiru told The Nation that he was eating in his class when he suddenly heard a loud sound, thinking it was a bomb.

“I was eating in my class when my school collapsed, I heard a loud sound, and our school shook and all of us fell on each other. I was afraid and I didn’t want to go to school that day, I later saw a caterpillar. Though I am fine but my back is still paining me and my neck.” he said

He said he is afraid to go to school again because he does not want to experience a similar incident again.

His Aunty, Balikis Muhammed, who is currently nursing him, said he was discharged from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH ) on Thursday, adding that he is still on medication and has an appointment in the hospital next Thursday.
