Three kids at the weekend died in Akaeze, Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State when a dilapidated building in the community collapsed.

The names of the children were given simply as Mmesoma, 11, Onyinyechi, 5, and John, 3.

They were all children of a man identified simply as “Okereke” in the area.

The tragedy occurred on Friday night.

It was learnt that before the building collapsed, Okereke’s wife, Elizabeth, had expressed fear over the physical condition of the house which our correspondent gathered was a thatch building and pleaded with her husband to work towards relocating the family immediately.

“But the family could not afford fund to make alternative arrangements for relocation as a result of hardship,” a source said.

The deceased were removed from the building by neighbors and have been buried while their mother and her only surviving son were still receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital as of the time of filing this report. (New Telegraph)
