There was chaos at the site of the building that collapsed in Lagos on Sunday, following protests by irate youths over alleged neglect of a rescued victim who was rushed to the Lagos General Hospital.
The youths had gone to the hospital and took the victim, Mohammed Mukaila, after the doctors allegedly refused to attend to him because they did not pay N10, 000.
Irritated by the development, they bundled the victim back home, who as a result of the mishap, lost one of his eyes and had become crippled.
The situation disrupted the operations of officials of Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON), who had come to the site to pick samples of the materials used for laboratory test.
Trouble started when Mukaila’s brother, one Hassan, came to tell the youths who rescued the victim’s life that he has been left unattended at the hospital.
It was learnt that Hassan, had told them that despite the sum of N10, 000 that he paid, his brother till Monday morning, was left on the wheel chair and only given two injections after he paid the sum.
As a result of this, the mob stopped the Lagos State Ambulance (LASAMBUS) that was sent to come and carry the victim back to the hospital so that an x-ray can be conducted on him.
It took the intervention of police officers and other youths, who told them that they were the ones that contacted the emergency response team to intimate them on the development before the ambulance was sent.
