Some of the injured pupils in the building collapse at Ita-faji, Lagos Island, on Wednesday are in stable condition and still receiving adequate medical attention in some hospitals in Lagos.
A visit from our source to the General Hospitals in Marina and Gbagada in Lagos, on Thursday showed that some of the patients had been stabilised, while others were still being attended to.
Names of the patients in stable condition had been pasted at the General Hospital on Wednesday for easy identification of the victims by their relatives.
Relations of some the victims expressed gratitude to God for the survival of their children, thanking the medical team for their care.
They told NAN on condition of anonymity that their loved ones had been stabilised and were receiving the needed treatment.
Dr Ismail Ganikale, the Medical Director, General Hospital, Lagos, said that no new victims of the school building collapse were brought to the hospital.
“No new casualty has been brought in and we are doing the best we can to mop up,” Ganikale said.
He said that the management had rallied the medical team and were doing some mop up in order to get the actual number of casualties.
Also, Dr Saliu Oseni, the Chairman, Lagos Chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), said that the association had been going round the hospitals to monitor the treatment of the victims.
“So far from what we gathered, the last set of patients that were brought to the Lagos General Hospital came in last night and we have yet to receive new patients as at this morning.
