On January 21, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Abubakar, said that the suspect’s brother, one Musa Bala, reported the case at the Ningi Police Station.

He revealed that on the same date at about 2:30 p.m., his younger brother poisoned his newborn son by feeding him insecticide.

“As a result, the baby became unconscious and was later taken to Ningi General Hospital, where a medical doctor certified him dead.”

This arrest comes shortly after one Joseph Adetunji, allegedly bathed his son’s face with acid, and appeared before an Ojo Magistrates’ Court, Lagos on Friday, January 26.
