Lagos explosion Claims School principal’s Life while rescuing students


Scores are still unravelling as the Principal of Bethlehem Girls College, Reverend Sister Henrietta Alokha, has allegedly died from the pipeline explosion that rocked Abule-Ado community of Lagos State.

The incident which occurred Sunday morning at about 8-9am, PARADISE NEWS learnt claimed the life of Rev. Sr. Alokha, who worked hard to rescue some students trapped in the boarding school under her care. The late principal is said to be the younger sister of WB Anselm Alokha.

Although it has been reported that it was a gas explosion, but residents of the community have asserted that it was a bomb explosion and not what was reported.

However, a resident who gave his name as Mr Mike, stated that the perpetrators must have targeted the Lagos Trade Fair Complex, which is only separated from Abule-Ado by a fence, or the Bethlehem Girls College, owned by the Catholic Church.

Mike said: “The Bethlehem Girls College was badly affected, with many boarding students sustaining injuries. In fact, nobody can say the exact number of persons that died at the college, but information so far indicates that a Reverend Sister is still missing since the explosion occurred. Her phone is ringing but she is not taking her calls and nobody has seen her. Another Sister, a female worker at the college was roasted beyond recognition.

“Many of the students are currently in different nearby hospitals receiving treatments, while so many others are yet to be found. That’s why I said that nobody can give accurate casualty figure at the college for now”.

Another resident who identified herself as Mama Divine assumed that with the information they got from soldiers guarding the pipeline, the explosion can only be caused a bomb.

“My brother, that is a bomb explosion. My street is very far from the scene of the explosion but all the storey buildings on that street lost their PVCs ceilings to the explosion. The whole buildings shook and their PVCs all fell off.

“Again, according the security personnel who were guarding the pipeline, the thing came like a rocket and hit the pipeline and the next thing was that smoke starting billowing before the deafening sound, which was followed by the destruction”, Mama Divine said.

There is also insinuation by some residents that the bomb might have been planted in a tipper truck, which was also burnt beyond recognition.

According to a resident who refused to give his name, “E be like say na that tipper carry the bomb. People wey dey around that moment said as soon as the tipper stopped, the person wet drive am just pack and disappeared. And, soon after that, the explosion happened and the tipper too got burn. So, e be like say na the tipper carry the bomb come”.
