Three siblings of the same parents, a boy and two girls, died on Sunday as a result of suffocation in a car parked in their residential quarters in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

Their mother, Shade Silifat, who had gone out to buy Indomie noodles for their school meals on Monday, fainted as a result of the incident that occurred at No. 8, Boluke Line, Zango-Kulende quarters in the Ilorin metropolis.

The incident occurred at about 2 pm when the three children locked themselves in the parked car borrowed by their father from his sister within the premises of their quarters.

Their mother, who discovered their footwear outside the parked car, raised an alarm after forcing the doors of the car open.

Pmnews.ng reports that the three children were then rushed to Olutayo Clinic, very close to their residence for medical attention.

The medical director, Dr Adeyemo, however, directed that they be taken to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Ilorin, where they were confirmed dead.

The bodies of the three siblings were later taken to a Muslim cemetery for burial according to Islamic rites.
