Following the aftermath of the explosion that rocks the Abule-Ado environs of Lagos State today, Rev. Sr. Henrietta Alokha has been confirmed dead.
She had tried saving the children under her care, and went back to save more before the roof caved in on her.
Most of the students have been accounted for, with minor cuts and injuries, whilst some whose injuries were more severe are at the Nigerian Navy Reference Hospital, Ojo.
According to Catholic Africa:
