Shocking: Police apprehends man after his kids were found dead inside deep freezer

The operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a suspect, Michael Ede, as a result of the mysterious deaths of his two children, Emma and Daramisi; and the family dog.

According to the Police, the deceased had gone to bed in their family home in Ikorodu, on Sunday, November 11, 2018, and were found dead at about 2:00 am when their father woke up.

The suspect told the Police that he has no idea how they were killed and that he found them in the freezer.

Speaking on the incident, the spokesperson of the Command, CSP Chike Oti, said Michael has been arrested for questioning.

Oti said; “One Michael Ede came to the station to report that around midnight on Sunday, November 11, 2018, he and his two children, Emma Ede, 6, and Darasimi Ede, 4, slept in his bedroom with all the apartment’s doors securely locked. But unfortunately, when he woke up to urinate in the middle of the night, he could not find his children, but after searching for them, he found them dead inside the freezer.

“The corpses have been evacuated to the General Hospital. We are investigating the matter and we have arrested the kids’ father for questioning.”
