A young man who shared a drug with a newborn is being sought by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).
Another person in the room captured the incident on a now-viral video, which shows the offender allegedly offering a baby girl suspected marijuana.
Nigerians were outraged by the footage and demanded that the police and Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) track down and arrest the pair.
CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, the force’s public relations officer, asked Nigerians with information about them to get in touch with the police.
The spokesman lamented the level of social decadence, advising mothers and guardians to be wary of those they leave their babies with.
“Until we arrest them, we won’t know what actually happened. The mother might not be there.
“I gave an analogy that it might be the mother’s sister who even took the baby to visit her boyfriend.
“He must be caused to face the wrath of the law. This is too bad. But above all, mothers must learn from this”, Adejobi said.
Adejobi added that every problem in Nigeria is tailored to one societal issue or the other and if addressed, the “general problems” would be “80% solved”.
