She reportedly, fainted when she met the three children motionless as a result of suffocation inside the car.

Efforts were made to rescue the lives of the children as they were quickly 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 three siblings were later taken to Muslim cemetery for burial according to Islamic rite.
