It was gathered that the victim, a mother of three, died when the concrete railings of a storey building in Olomore area of Abeokuta gave way and collapsed on her. A source, who lives in the area said that the incident occurred, weekend, when a man and his wife, who were tenants in the building, were sitting outside the house before the balcony of the top floor fell and killed the wife.
