It was gathered that the kids were said to be playing inside the SUV when they mistakenly locked themselves in as efforts to unlock the door proved abortive.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Hakeem Odumosu, confirmed the arrest of the suspects.

According to the police boss, one of the suspects is the grandmother of a three-year-old child who also died in the unfortunate incident.

The arrest comes 24 hours after the State Police Command said it is investigating the death of the eight children.
