A source says the children could have been killed by some unknown persons who later dumped their lifeless bodies inside the freezer to give an impression that they suffocated. Another source said the two kids might be playing inside the freezer and mistakenly got locked in when their mother was not at home.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident, describing it as sad and unfortunate. He explained that there was no evidence that the boys were killed, adding that the command did not make any arrest. 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.
