The prosecutor, ASP Kenneth Asibor, said the baby was playing in the complex on Friday, August 2, 2019, at approximately 2: 0 o’clock, while the suspect entered and charged the baby, thinking that no one saw him.

“Unfortunately for him, the older brother of the baby who was also playing inside the facility noticed it and alerted the security guard who was in the bathroom.”
