Car which eight persons died in Lagos

Eight children have been found dead in a locked car parked along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway in Lagos State.

The children were found motionless inside the car, which was on Adelayo street, Jah-Micheal, along the expressway on Saturday.

The children, aged four to six years old, reportedly entered the car and locked themselves in. They were believed to have died due to heat.

According to a source, they were found dead a few hours later, when a parent was looking for one of them.

“The car owner parked his car outside his compound, and his kids, along with their friends, eight of them entered the car, presumably to play. It seems the car child lock was on and the car could only be opened from outside, so they died due to heat. Although, some people believe there’s more to the story,” the source said.

Adekunle Ajisebutu, Lagos police spokesperson, confirmed the incident on Sunday.

“The eight children were said to have mistakenly locked themselves in an abandoned car while playing,” Ajisebutu told TheCable.

“Their bodies have been recovered and deposited at the Badagry General Hospital’s morgue for autopsy so as to determine the actual cause of death.”

The command spokesman also said Hakeem Odumosu, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, has ordered a “thorough and speedy” investigation into the circumstances surrounding their death.

2023: ‘It Is Criminal For Tinubu To Think Of Taking Presidential Slot’ – Obioha

Published

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

Political Analyst, Greg Obioha, has condemned Leader of All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu’s ambition to contest for president in the coming 2023 election.

In a recent interview, Obioha, noted that any Igbo man who supports Tinubu should be banished.

“To promote Ashiwaju for what? Whoever does it no matter his inalienable right to associate or support whoever he wishes is not a true Igbo person.

“Why should we talk of Tinubu in Igbo land? Obasanjo displaced the foremost leader, Alex Ekwueme, and opened ...-military democratic rule of the present era between 1999 and 2007. A Yoruba man became the Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives immediately after Obasanjo, I mean Dimeji Bankole.

“In 2015, power returned to the northern part of the country through Buhari, and naturally the Vice President should come from the south. What happened? Same southwest led by this very Tinubu insisted that it must be ceded to them and it happened? Professor Yemi Osibanjo was made the Vice President and by 2023, he would have spent eight years there.

“Again, shortly after the 2019 general election, while a Yoruba man in the person of Osinbajo was the vice President, same Yorubas of the southwest led by Tinubu insisted that the Speaker of House of Representatives be ceded to their region and that was how Gbajabiamila emerged.

“At the Senate, the Deputy Senate President slot for the south was grabbed by Senator Omo Age from Delta State. When Obasanjo ceded power back to the north on completion of his tenure, he ceded the Vice President slot meant for the south to the south-south state of Bayelsa, through Jonathan who later became the President of Nigeria for six years. That implies that every slot that had been ceded to the south since 1999 returned to the southwest or southeast.

“It is criminal, atrocious, repugnant for Tinubu to think of taking the presidential slot of 2023 that has been ceded to the southern part of the country. Any Igbo man that supports such criminality deserves to be banished.”
