News 4 reports that Oyindasola who worked as a nanny in the Maryland area has been charged in the asphyxiation death of the baby girl who was in her care.

The accused was allegedly caught on camera as she force-fed two bottles to the baby and the child choked to death, police say.

The baby whose parents are also Nigerians, according to the report, died after she was rushed to a hospital in Prince George's County.

Authorities said video camera footage revealed that Oyindasola, was asleep on a couch inside the house when the baby, who was in a walker, began crying and woke her up.

On waking up, the angry nanny tried to feed the baby, but without success. She then pulled the baby from her walker, removed the nipple from her bottle and forcefully fed her.

"She forcefully poured the two bottles of what looks to be milk down the baby's mouth, causing her to not be able to breathe, suffocating her, and eventually she died at the hospital," Col. Harry Bond of the Prince George's County Police stated.
