Adekunle Ajisebutu, the police spokesperson in Lagos, confirmed the incident which happened on Saturday.

According to reports, the vehicle is owned by one Saliat Kazeem, who parked the vehicle in front of her house.

The vehicle reportedly has a childlock feature and could only be opened from outside.

Mr Ajisebutu, a chief superintendent of police, said the police commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered a thorough and speedy investigation into the circumstances surrounding their death.
