    Three kids at the weekend died in Akaeze, Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State when a dilapidated building in the community collapsed due to it’s dilapidated nature.
    A source who spoke to our correspondence in the ground of anonymity gave the names of the children as Mmesoma Okereke, 11, Onyinyechi Okereke, 5, and John Okereke, 3. 
    They were all children of a man identified simply as Mr “Okereke” in the area. The tragedy occurred on weekend.
    It was learnt that before the building collapsed, Okereke’s wife, Elizabeth, had expressed fear over the physical condition of the house which our correspondent gathered was a thatch building and pleaded with her husband to work towards relocating the family immediately.“But the family could not afford fund to make alternative arrangements for relocation as a result of hardship,” a source further said.
    The deceased were removed from the building by neighbors and have been buried while their mother and her only surviving son were  still receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital as at the time of filing this report
