PATHETIC: School wall collapses, kills one, injures 4 in Ogun

Tragedy struck, yesterday, in Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State, when the wall of  Ketu  Adiye Owe Primary School collapsed, killing a pupil and injured four others.

The incident came barely 48 hours after the state House of Assembly  Committee on Education decried what it described as deplorable condition of public schools in the state.

The injured pupils were reportedly  rushed to a private hospital before the council  Chairman, Mr. Rotimi Rahmon, who reportedly visited the school shortly  after the incident, directed that the victims be moved to the General  Hospital, Ota, for better medical attention.

Our reporter learnt that  the collapsed wall had been  eaten up by erosion which had been the problem in that part of the  school compound.

Confirming the incident, Chairman of the council expressed regrets over the unfortunate incident, saying he has  directed that the standing wall of the affected classroom be brought down.
