The Lagos State Police have begun investigation into the death of eight children found dead in a car on Sunday morning at Adelayo Street, Jah-Michael along Badagry Expressway, Lagos.

In a press statement yesterday, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the bodies have been recovered and deposited at the Badagry General Hospital morgue for autopsy to determine the actual cause of death.

He said: “The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered a thorough and speedy investigation into the circumstances surrounding their death. The CP also commiserates with the families of the victims.”
