The mother of a seven-year-old primary one pupil, Samuel Olayinka, says she has yet to get over the loss of her only son, days after he was crushed to death by the car of a baale (traditional leader), Chief Spencer Savage.
It was learnt that Olayinka, a pupil of St. Kizto Primary School II, was playing with his friends on the premises of Fagba Junior Grammar School in Iju Station during the closing hours when the accident happened.
The two schools and five others are located in the same compound.
PUNCH Metro gathered that Savage had driven into the secondary school premises around 3pm on October 7, and was reversing while trying to park not knowing that Olayinka was behind the car.
Olayinka had been waiting since 1pm for his sister - who is in JSS 3 - at a neighbouring school, to take him home.
He was said to have been rushed to a private hospital in the area where he died.
The deceased's mother, who identified herself simply as Mama Mary, said her joy had been stolen. She, however, said she had taken solace in God. She said:The Head Teacher of the school, Mrs. Sowunmi, declined to comment on the incident and referred Punch to her superiors.
"I cannot talk to the press concerning the incident. Please, meet those at the top," she said.
The Lagos State Police spokesperson, DSP Joe Offor, had yet to reply to a text message sent to his phone on the incident.
