Taking action for the victims of the collapsed building in Lagos

Published Mar 15, 2019

According to Punch Newspaper, “a three-storey building, located on 63 Massey Street, Ita-Faaji area of Lagos Island, collapsed on Wednesday, during which ten persons, including four pupils, were feared dead. It was gathered that the building, which housed a school, Ohen Nursery and Primary School, and residential apartments, caved in around 10:00 a.m.” This happened on Wednesday the 13th of March 2019.

This is not the first time a building is collapsing in Lagos, in 2018 alone, at least 5 buildings collapsed leaving several people dead and many injured. The number of school children that might have died, injured or survived from this recent building collapse is yet unknown. This is painful because the tragedy could have been prevented if the authorities in charge of approving and inspecting buildings did what they are supposed to be doing.

Unfortunately, some of these school children can no longer go to school. It is only fair that all concerned global active citizens take this action to get justice for this inhumanity and prevent future occurrences.

Justice for the victims of the recent building collapse in Lagos

Dear Mr. Anthony O. Ojukwu Esq

Executive Secretary

National Human Rights Commission

Dear Sir,

We are bringing the recent building collapse in Ita-Faaji area of Lagos Island to your attention and for your urgent and committed action. Many school children were in school when the tragedy happened around 10am on Wednesday the 13th of March 2019. We believe some of these children are dead and some are injured and the hope of going back to school is either no more existent or slim which is an abuse to the right of every child to access quality education.

We know that the NHRC was setup to promote, protect and enforce human rights in Nigeria, we thereby call on you to swiftly investigate what happened and ensure that these children and other victims of this inhumanity get justice.

Thank you for listening to us and we will be happy to hear of the positive outcomes of this issue.
