Eight children were on Thursday, December 4, found d*ad inside a locked Lexus SUV in Agunaje, Badagry area of Lagos.
The children, aged four to six years old, reportedly entered the car and locked themselves in. They were believed to have d*ed due to heat.
According to a source, they were found d*ad a few hours later, when a parent was looking for one of them.
“The car owner parked his car outside his compound, and his kids, along with their friends, eight of them entered the car, presumably to play. It seems the car child lock was on and the car could only be opened from outside, so they d*ed due to heat. Although, some people believe there’s more to the story,” the source said.
