A man has been arrested for using a lit cigarette to torture a little baby.
The 32-year-old man, Adeyemo Mayowa has been remanded for assaulting his 18-months-old son, Okukute, by beating him with a stick and torturing him cigarette light.
The Prosecutor, Inspector Fagboyibo Abiodun, said that the baby sustained injuries all over his body as a result of the cigarette torture.
Adeyemo was also charged for exploiting a child and being prejudicial to the welfare of the child.
According to him:
“I have five children from five different mothers. Several pastors I consulted told me that my mother was the one bewitching me.
I am a taxi driver but things have not been fine for me. The son I assaulted with sticks is the son that my fourth wife bore for me.”
Chief Magistrate Modupe Awodele remanded Adeyemo in Ilesha Correctional Centre and adjourned the case to July 14, 2020.
