Nigerian Couple Arrested For Fracturing Child’s Skull In Providence, USA [Photo]



A Nigerian couple, Arinola 33, and Olalekan Olawusi have been arrested in Providence, Rhode Island, US on Monday, April 3 and arraigned in court on a felony charges of child neglect, first and degree child abuse.
According to news reports, early Mondayafternoon, the frantic father called 911 and said his child was dying.
Three-month-old Tobiloba Olawusi wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a pulse, police say, but Providence firefighters resuscitated the baby in their rush to Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
The baby was found to have old and new injuries — bite marks and a fractured skull, broken ribs, arms and legs, said Special Assistant Attorney General Shannon Signore, chief of the office’s child abuse unit.
The baby’s mother, Arinola told the police that her husband, bit the baby and pulled his legs to “make him grow and strong.”
The baby’s prognosis was still uncertain on Tuesday, Signore said.
The Olawusis were arraigned Tuesday afternoon, April 4th, exactly 24 hours after police were called by the hospital to investigate.
Arinola Olawusi was arraigned in Family Court on a felony charge of child neglect, while Olalekan Olawusi was arraigned in District Court on charges of first- and second-degree child abuse.
A judge set bail at $40,000 with surety for Olalekan and ordered him to surrender his Nigerian passport.
The family has been living at 49 Constitution St., in the city’s West End.
Both parents are ordered not to have any contact with the baby. The state Department of Children, Youth and Families has been involved with the baby since birth, said spokesman Denis Riel.
An older sibling is already in foster placement with a relative, he said.
