“The corpses of the victims have been deposited in a mortuary.
The victims were the only children of their parents. In fact, their parents fainted after they informed them that their children drowned.”

Hundeyin further condemned the management of the estate for not having lifeguards on ground to monitor activities around the pool.

“Just a piece of advice, do not use a swimming pool without an on-duty lifeguard. Do not swim at beaches without capable hands around. People are losing loved ones to avoidable drowning. Three siblings recently drowned together. Eldest was a teenager. Be careful out there,” he said
