A three-year-old boy named after Kabiru Sasore, who had survived the recent building collapse at Ita Faji on Lagos Island, has expressed his fear of going back to school.

Kabiru who is still shocked over the incident, told The Nation that he was eating in his class when he suddenly heard a loud sound, thinking it was a bomb. He said: “I was eating in my class when my school collapsed, I heard a loud sound, and our school shook and all of us fell on each other. I was afraid and I didn’t want to go to school that day, I later saw a caterpillar. Though I am fine but my back is still painting me and my neck.”

He said he is scared of returning back to school as he does not want to experience a similar incident again.
