The Lagos State Government has asked the public to asssist in identifying a woman captured in a viral video assaulting a baby for urinating on the floor.

Naija News reports that the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (LSDSVA) made this known in a post it shared on its verified X account on Saturday.

In the viral video, the woman was seen beating the baby with a rod while turning deaf ears to the child’s cries.

However, it is unclear as of press time if the perpetrator in the video is the mother of the child or a maid.
