She claimed that the remains of the children looked dried as if their blood was drained from their bodies.

The bereaved mother who spoke with The Cable recently noted that she noticed that her children and other kids were foaming in their mouths and noses when their lifeless bodies were brought out from the car.
“Nobody will accept this. We lost seven children (referring to herself and her neighbours). I lost three. I was the one who gave birth to them. The oldest among them is Zainab, 12 years old. Another one would have been five years old this month, and the other one was four.
“Three children are gone like that. I gave birth to only four. Now, three are gone. They were killed.
“I’m a mother. My children were killed. They killed my children. I was the one who brought them out of the car. Their blood was drained.
