Nigerian man seeks help for Lagos building collapse survivor

One of the survivors of the Lagos building collapse, identified as Mubarak Olayinka is in need of financial support for CT scan following injury he sustained in the collapse.

WuzupNaija reports that a three storey building housing a nursery and primary school on the third floor collapsed at the Ita-Faji area of Lagos Island last week Wednesday. The collapse led to the loss of lives of some occupants while those injured are still receiving treatment at different hospitals across the state.

A social media user, identified as Bello Oladimeji Oriyomi, called the attention of the public to the plight of the young boy, who is also reported to be an orphan whose guardian could not raise the fund needed for the scan.

He is currently receiving treatment at the Ikorodu General Hospital after sustaining injuries on his head and other parts of his body.

Bello shared photos of Mubarak on the hospital bed and marks of injuries could be seen all over his body.

Nigerians are yet to get over the Itafaji building collapse that resulted in the loss of lives and hospitalisation of many young children. Most of the survivors are gradually recuperating and finding a way to keep forging ahead in life.
