 An early morning downpour, on Wednesday, wreaked havoc in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, as seven pupils of Living Foundation Nursery/Primary School were trapped in their classrooms before the rescue team could get there. The pupils were between four and seven years.

The rain, which started a few minutes after some pupils had arrived on the school premises, located within Tuntun-Kauri area on the Lafia-Makurdi Expressway, also affected many houses within the vicinity due to lack of proper drainage.

An eyewitness said the classrooms which were erected with iron sheets on waterways could not withstand the force of the torrent and was pulled down suddenly. All seven pupils in the class at that time  died instantly.

Some teachers, who were at the school when the torrential rain started, abandoned the pupils and ran for  their dear lives.
