Muinat Ilebiyi, a student of Nazareth High School, Imeko, Ogun State, has died after a classroom building collapsed on her and two others girls.

The Councillor of Imeko Ward, Hon. Samuel Sunday Ojoawo, confirmed the incident on Sunday.

It was learnt that the building suddenly fell on the three students, killing Ilebiyi on the spot, as the two others sustained injuries.

While the injured students were taken to hospital for treatment, the deceased was said to have been buried according to Islamic rites on Thursday.

According to the Councillor, one of the two survivors of the incident sustained minor injuries, while the other was responding to treatment at the hospital

“The incident is highly disheartening and pathetic. Three girls were involved in the incident, one dead and two injured. One of the injured two victims sustained very minor injuries. The other one was taken to the hospital. I went there and she’s responding to treatment. She is better now,” Ojaowo said in a phone interview.

Speaking further, the Councillor explained that the current administration in Imeko-Afon Local Government had ordered the demolition of the total demolition of the building involved.

“The new administration in Imeko-Afon Local Government is trying to take necessary actions. My Executive Chairman has ordered that they should demolish the building. Necessary action has been taken by the new administration of our local government,” he added.

Contacted, the Chairman of Imeko-Afon, Hon. Yahaya Fadipe, declined comments, saying he was not around when the incident happened.

Fadipe refused to comment on the incident, maintaining that he was not the principal of the school.

His words: “Until I know the person I’m talking to, I can’t talk anything on the phone. I am not the principal of the school. I was not around when the incident happened. So, I can’t say anything much about it.”

The Special Adviser to Governor Dapo Abiodun on Primary and Secondary Education, Mrs Ronke Soyombo, also refused to speak on the ugly incident, referring our our correspondent to the Commissioner of Education, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu.

“Have you called the Honourable Commissioner (for Education)? Send him a text, he would respond. He’s the only one who can talk about it. So sorry about it. Thank you,” Soyombo tersely replied.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner could not be reached on phone; he did not reply to a message sent to him.
