The deceased, Aisha Michael and Ibrahim Bernard, were found dead in the pit, a location, said to be far from the homes of their respective parents, a day after they had been declared missing. .
It was gathered that their discovery was suspicious to residents of the community, as the boy was still crawling, while the girl was only tottering. .
Before locating the corpses, people were said to have combed many places in search of the kids whose disappearances happened in separate locations with one said to have taken place at home and the other at the market. .
Residents suspected that the kids were killed for a ritual purpose, because another boy had, recently, been found in the same pit, though rescued alive. .
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Ajayi Okasanmi, said police were still investigating to unravel how the kids got missing and died.
