Nigeria: “Three Siblings Tragically Suffocate Inside Car in Kwara State, Nigeria”

By Ahmad Hadizat Omayoza, Mamos Nigeria

Three siblings, a boy and two girls, tragically died from extreme suffocation inside a car parked in their residential quarters in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State. The incident took place at No. 8, Boluke Line, Zango-Kulende quarters in the Ilorin East local government area on Sunday.

According to reliable sources, the incident occurred around 2 p.m. when the children, all from the same parent, were playing inside the car and accidentally locked themselves in. The car, borrowed by their father from his sister within the same premises, was intended for quick domestic use.

On Monday, their mother, Shade Silifat, had gone out to buy noodles for the children’s school meals when she noticed their footwear outside the parked car. After forcing the car’s doors open, she discovered her three children motionless and fainted upon realizing they had suffocated inside the vehicle.

Efforts were made to save the children’s lives as they were quickly rushed to Olutayo Clinic, near their residence, for medical attention. However, the medical director, Dr. Adeyemo, directed that they be taken to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, where they were confirmed dead.

The three siblings were later laid to rest in the Muslim cemetery, following Islamic rites.

This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the dangers of leaving children unattended in vehicles, especially during hot weather conditions. It is essential for parents and guardians to always be vigilant and ensure the safety of their children at all times.
