Olufemitan Olaitan, 9; and Oluwafifunmi Olaitan, 7, both of the same parents, have been found dead inside a non-functioning deep freezer in their house located at No 6, Road 1, Eyin Ala, Akure in Ondo State.
The two kids were left at home on Monday, by their mother, Olubunmi Olaitan, but she was surprised to meet the dead body of her two male kids inside a deep freezer and subsequently raised the alarm.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO) Mr Femi Joseph confirmed the incident, describing it as sad and unfortunate. He explained that there was no trace that the boys were killed, saying that the command did not make any arrest on the matter.
He said, “We did not suspect any foul play because it appears as if the kids were playing inside the deep freezer and they were locked up in the process, while there was nobody at home to open the door for them.”
