12-year-old Passes On After Falling Into Pit Latrine In Ekiti

 

A 12-year-old girl, Blessing, reportedly died when she fell in to a pit latrine at Asin-Ekiti, in Ikole Local Government area of Ekiti State.
A witness, Ruth Bamidele, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday that the deceased was running an errand for her parents on Monday evening when the incident occurred. Ms. Bamidele said his ex mistakenly stepped on rusty and weak concrete that covered the pit latrine and fell inside with nobody around to rescue her.
She said her parents raised alarm on Monday night when she didn’t return home and the look for her whereabouts continued till Tuesday morning.

 

“One of the neighbours in search of the missing girl noticed the collapsed lid of the pit toilet in a residential building situated behind the Alasin palace.
“A lifeless body was sighted inside the pit and was later brought out; it was the missing girl and the incident threw the entire community into mourning,” she said.
It was learnt that the deceased was in happy mood when her parents sent her on errand on the day of the incident, unknown that it was a journey of no return. Many residents of the community were seen sympathising with the deceased parents, Rotimi and Helen, who were wailing uncontrollable.

Meanwhile, the Ikole Local Government Council has warned all landlords in the area with uncompleted or damaged pit latrines to, as a matter of urgency, put them in good shape.
