The Nigerian Police has arrested one Isiaka Ayobami of No. 2, Ayo Ijaiye Street, Isheri, Lagos, for forcefully seizing a one-year-old girl, Aishat Isiaka, from her mother and hitting her on the ground.
Lagos Public Relations Officer, DSP Bala Elkana, in a statement released to newsmen on Sunday, said the baby’s head was shattered and that she died on the spot.
Elkana said father of the deceased baby, Garuba Isiaka, of No. 7, Ayo Ijaiye Street, had reported the incident at Isheri Police Station.
“The suspect was almost lynched by angry mob from the area, if not for the timely intervention of the police.
“He will be charged to court for murder,” Elkana said.
