A  73-year-old Nigerian live-in nanny Oluremi Adeleye Oyindasola has been found guilty of murder, after she faced charges for force-feeding an 8-month-old girl, which led to her death.

The Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office in the state of Maryland, on Monday, said that 73-year-old Oyindasola had been found guilty of second degree murder, second degree child abuse and first degree child abuse resulting in death.

In October 2016, Oyindasola was a live-in nanny at the residence of Nikia Porter and Influence Salubi and cared for their three children.

Oyindasola was captured on a home nanny camera with 8-month-old Enita Salubi. The infant is seen in the video in a baby walker pulling on the nanny’s dress and patting her leg while Oyindasola was lying on the couch.

Oyindasola gets up and tries to feed the baby, but prosecutors say she is later seen removing the nipple from the bottle and pouring milk into Enita’s mouth until she is no longer conscious.

The young girl was taken to the University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Force feeding of babies in Africa has long been practiced by most mothers and has more or less been accepted in the society. “If my child doesn’t eat, what should I do”? This has been the prime question that run through the minds of mothers thus compel them to force feed their babies. However, some doctors express their worry about it in recent times.

Paediatricians has advised mothers to stop the habit of force-feeding their babies to avoid accidental suffocation.

Sentencing for Oyindasola is set for May 3, 2019.
