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.”
