The unfortunate event transpired around 2 p.m. when the children inadvertently locked themselves inside a car borrowed by their father from his sister.

The mother, Shade Silifat, who had gone out to purchase noodles for their school meals on Monday, made the distressing discovery upon finding the children’s footwear outside the parked car. She immediately raised an alarm and managed to force the car doors open.

The three children were swiftly taken to Olutayo Clinic, located near their residence, for urgent medical attention. However, the Medical Director, identified as Dr. Adeyemo, directed that they be transferred to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, where they were sadly confirmed dead.

Subsequently, the three siblings were laid to rest at a Muslim cemetery, following Islamic rites, as their grief-stricken family and community grappled with the heartbreaking loss.
