At the ongoing trial of the murder of a three-week-old baby, Princess Happiness Moses, a Lagos High Court sitting at Igbosere prosecution witness, Inspector Simeon Kunamon told the court how a motorcycle rider, Ilaya Peters, was paid N5, 000 to murder the baby. According to the witness Simeon Kunamon, trouble started when Gloria Yusuf, mother of the baby told Moses Joseph, her lover of one year, that she was pregnant, and that Moses asked her to terminate the pregnancy, which she refused, which made her to pack out of the house and rented an apartment at Ajegunle, until she gave birth on January 13, 2012; to a baby girl she named Princess Happiness Moses.

He said the baby was killed on February 2, 2012, at about 1a.m; four weeks after the father of the baby paid her a visit.

Mr. Kunamon testified that the baby’s father, Moses Joseph, who is attached to Nigerian Navy, Amuwo Odofin, paid the defendant and others at large they said sum to forcibly take the baby from her mother, which he threw into the lagoon.

The defendant had earlier been arraigned on a two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and murder preferred against him by Lagos State. He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges against him as Justice Adebiyi adjourned the matter to February 18, 2015.

The heart of man is desperately evil, why kill the poor baby? The woman had moved out already so why could he not just leave them alone?
