Olufemitan Olaitan, 9 years of age and Oluwafifunmi Olaitan, 7 have been found in their house located at No 6, Road 1, Eyin Ala, Akure in Ondo State deceased and inside a non-functioning deep freezer
Their mother, Mrs. Olubunmi Olaitan, went out and left her two sons, who were in primary school, in the house playing; however before she returned home, the two male children were already inside the deep freezer, dead.
The mysterious incident occurred on Monday, and authorities are still asking questions as to how the children got into the deep freezer and were found dead.
Mr. Femi Joseph, the state Police Public Relations Officer, who verified the incident described it as “sad and unfortunate.”
He stated that there was no trace that the boys were killed, and added that no arrests were made around the matter.
“We did not suspect any foul play because it appeared as if the kids were playing inside the deep freezer and the deep freezer locked up when there was nobody at home to open its door for them,” Joseph said.
