He Lost His 4 Children in 1 Day – Heartbreak for Mudslide Victims’ Father



A 50 year old Nigerian Policeman lost has 4 children in a mudslide which occurred on Saturday in Orisha Community, Magodo, Isheri, Lagos.

Heavy rains during the preceding days are said to have caused the tragic incident.

The father of the victims identified as Sylva, 23 Sayo, 15, Clinton, 13 and Endurance, 8 said to Punch Newspaper‘s correspondent “By 3am, I wake up every day to prepare for work. That is the time I also wake them up. But since today is Saturday, I did not bother to do that. I still saw them sleeping as I prepared myself for work.

I was in the parlour when I heard a loud noise. My four children just died like that. God, what is my offence? What did I do wrong? Four children in one day?! I am supposed to die in their place. I must have sinned. I don’t even know what I am still doing alive.”

He can be seen visibly shaken in this video clip as he mourns the death of his precious children.

    Please dear people who live in such areas please consider moving away fast!

    May God console this man as he should be closely monitored not to kill himself!

    No one except God can console him. Sad

    This pain is unbearable! Where are they supposed to start from? I mean this is the kind of pain ONLY GOD CAN HEAL! That’s just the bad thing about our poor and dysfunctional system: until we loose precious lives, our agencies will pretend not to see the poor standards that look at us in the face. Who gave the approval for that house to be built. This is what happens when we have people who do not uphold the ethics and standards of their profession in government agencies. What a waste!
