Wednesday’s building collapse in Lagos which killed 20 pupils has recorded another tragic incident as a woman who lost her two children in the fallen house has reportedly killed herself by ingesting the insecticide known as Sniper.
Leadership Weekend gathered that she committed suicide after she received the news of the death of the children. Neighbours seen talking about the tragic incident said the woman and her husband, who live(d) in Gambari area of the Island, had two children aged six and four through Caesarean Section.
