A 9-year-old girl has died after a wall collapsed at Osarehen Street, Off Powerline Road, Ogida Quaters in Egor Local Government Area of Edo State.

The victim identified as Choice Izevbaye, a primary three pupil was sent to a commercial borehole to fetch water when the the four feet high wall erected to support water pipes collapsed on her as she bent to scoop water from a bowl.
