The charred remains of 3 siblings were discovered at 18 Fakoya Street, Shasha, Lagos State. The children were burnt alive in a fire incident at their home in the early hours of this morning.
The 3 children were locked up in their home while their father went to the hospital to check up on their mother who had just delivered another child. The children were burnt alive in their home in the absence of their father. Neighbors and eyewitnesses at the scene were unable to help save their lives.
The Lagos Fire Service, an ambulance service, and the Nigeria Police were on the scene but left shortly after, abandoning the remains of the children according to sources at the scene.
Meanwhile the landlord and other tenants have fled the homestead and the father of the deceased children has been unreachable.
