The children died from asphyxiation, a state being deprived of oxygen, which results unconsciousness or death; suffocation.

Eight children have been found dead in a Lexus SUV parked in front of the owner’s house at Adelayo Street, Agunaje, along Badagry Expressway in Lagos.

The incident happened on Saturday.

Adekunle Ajisebutu, the police spokesperson in Lagos, confirmed the incident.

“The eight children were said to have mistakenly locked themselves in an abandoned car while playing.

“Their bodies have been recovered and deposited at the Badagry General Hospital’s morgue for autopsy so as to determine the actual cause of death,” Mr Ajisebutu said.

According to reports, the vehicle is owned by one Saliat Kazeem, who parked the vehicle in front of her house.

The vehicle reportedly has a childlock feature and could only be opened from outside.

The children, who were between the ages of four and six, were found dead by a parent who was looking for her ward.

Mr Ajisebutu, a chief superintendent of police, said the police commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered a thorough and speedy investigation into the circumstances surrounding their death.

Mr Odumosu, who commiserated with the families of the victims, assured them of proper investigation.

This is sad...

What sort of negligence is that?

How will eight children open a parked car and cramp themselves in the car and then go ahead to lock themselves just to play inside? They need to do more investigation.

RIP to the dead.

Haaaa! What sort of Àkóbá is this?

So out of all the available places to play, the 8 children only saw the inside of the car to play and no one noticed them.

Do you understand the mechanism of childlock?

Should a car owner suffer for the negligence of parents?

How come the owner of the car did not lock her car after she parked it? No one to protect the Nigerian child. People make children they cannot take care of. How unfortunate! May the little ones rest in the bosom of Elohim God Almighty.

But child lock only affects the back doors, the front doors don’t have child lock protection

Dont mind Nigerians. A people who are always over the top and always thinking the worst. This is how they will go and lynch the owner of the vehicle claiming she sacrificed the children for money ritual. Nonsense.

Likely just an accident. A child has done it before in my friend's compound. He opened a car door, shut it and could not get out because of the child lock. Luckily there were a lot of adults around and we found him in the vehicle crying.

Don't mind that character. His type can lead a lynch mob to the house of the car owner even when the report says the car has child locks in place that prevented the children being able to open the doors from inside.

It is negligence. If it happens in developed nations, parents would be questioned and remaining children would be withdrawn from them for foster care.
Children locked themselves for at least 4 hours for them to die of hypoxic injury.
Parents should constantly check their children and group of children playing should be supervised by an adult.
