The eight children found dead in a parked car at Jah-Michael community, along Badagry Expressway, Olorunda LCDA axis of Lagos, have been laid to rest.

We reported that the children aged four to six years old, had entered the parked Lexus SUV vehicle to play, mistakenly locked themselves and subsequently suffocated to death.

They were discovered when one Saliat Kazeem, who wanted to feed her granddaughter, raised the alarm that the children were trapped inside the vehicle.

Two parents, Ibrahim Jubril and Isiaka Alidu, whose seven children were among the deceased said they had submitted to the will of God.

Ibrahim Jubril, told NAN that he lost four children in the incident.

 

“My four children, Abdul-Tayab, Mamood, (two boys); Aisat and Farida (girls) lost their lives inside the abandoned vehicle. I was inside this central mosque when people came to call me to come and see what happened to my children.

“Before I got to the scene, they have brought them out of the car. Nobody knows how they got inside the motor and locked themselves inside. As a Muslim, everything that happens in life comes from Allah, we believe that it is Allah that gives and take back at any time in life. My wife has also submitted to the will of Allah. We have buried our children according to Muslim rites and we are here at the mosque praying to Allah to forgive them their sins,” he said.

Another bereaved father, Isiaka Abdul-Wahab, said he lost three children in the incident.

“My two boys, Abdul-Wahab and Yakubu, then a girl, Zainab, just returned from Quranic school; after eating they started playing with their friends. I went to the mosque to pray for about an hour and from there I went to Quranic school to see a friend.

“Suddenly, my wife sent for me, when I got there, I saw the lifeless bodies of my children. We have submitted to the will of Allah because he is the one that gives and take,” he said
