According to the report, the suspect had picked a quarrel with his wife in the morning of Thursday, May 12, which later degenerated into a fight. While the issue was still boiling, the mother of the child reportedly picked up the three-months-old with the belief that this will assuage her husband's anger.

But Chinedu who was not in the mood to calm down, aimed a punch at the woman but missed and instead, hit the infant on the head. When he saw the damage he had done, he was said to have rushed the baby to the hospital where it was confirmed dead.

The local vigilante was informed and the suspect was arrested and handed over to the police.

During his interrogation, Chinedu was said to have broken down in tears, blaming the devil for his actions. He reportedly told the police that his wife provoked him by refusing to wash his clothes, which made him pick the quarrel with her in the first place.
