According to a report by Punch Metro, no less than three pupils of Ikosi High School, Ketu, have collapsed following heavy smoke from the Olusosun dump in Ojota area.

The environmental pollution, which began on Wednesday after a fire outbreak at the site, has forced many residents and business owners to run for safety.

On Friday when Punch Metro visited Ikosi, primary and secondary school, pupils could be seen rushing out of their schools and going home.

A Senior Secondary School 2 pupil of IHS named Lateef told Punch Metro that teachers asked them to go home at 11 am as a result of the danger the smoke posed to their health.

He revealed that three pupils of the school collapsed on Thursday and were rushed for medical attention.

While confirming the development, a handful other pupils Punch Metro spoke with said their colleagues’ health situation really left everyone panicking.

Apart from IHS, other schools where pupils were released to go home on Thursday and Friday as a result of the heavy smoke include Ikosi Junior High School, Ikosi Primary School and Express Nursery and Primary School 1 and 2.

A teacher in one of the schools, who asked not to be named, said academic activities have been seriously affected as a result of the situation.

He declined to confirm if indeed the three pupils collapsed or not, saying he had no power to speak on the matter.
