“Three of them died on the spot while the other two are under critical condition,” he said.
Adeleye, who admonished parents to watch over their children to avoid sudden deaths, said that those involved were in their twenties.
parents should keep watch over their children.
“As of the time when the accident happened, the children should be under their parents’ watch and the victims were coming from the club which is unfortunate.
“Most importantly, if people have reason to go to the club, whoever that is going to drive should avoid taking alcohol even when others are drinking to avoid preventable death,” he said.
