The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has launched a pursuit of a young man who engaged in substance with an infant.
A viral video, recorded by someone else in the room, shows the perpetrator giving the suspected marijuana to a child.
The video sparked outrage when Nigerians accused the police and the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) of finding and prosecuting the duo.
The force’s public relations officer, Moiwa Adigobe, urged Nigerians who had information on them to contact the police.
The speaker lamented the level of social deterioration, and advised mothers and guardians that they should be careful who they leave their children with.
Until we arrest them, we won’t know what really happened. The mother may not be there.
“I have given an analogy that it may have been the mother’s sister who took the child to visit her friend.
“He should be forced to face the wrath of the law. This is too bad. But above all, mothers should learn from this,” Adigobe said.
Adejobi added that every problem in Nigeria is tailored to one societal issue or the other, and if addressed, “general problems” would be “80% solved”.
