A police spokesperson explained that two brothers reported dead in Akure may have died while playing in a freezer.
According to Punch News, the deceased, Olufemitan, 9; and Oluwafifunmi, 7, died in their mother's absence.
The mum, Mrs. Olubunmi Olaitan, had left them playing at home in a lively state, but unfortunately returned to her residence in Road 1, Eyin Ala, Akure, to find them killed.
Many theories have been submitted in respect to their deaths, but police spokesperson, Mr. Femi Joseph, suspects no foul play.
“We do not suspect any foul play because it appeared as if the kids were playing inside the deep freezer and it locked up when there was nobody at home to open it for them,” Joseph told Punch.
