The Nigeria Police say they have arrested the father of a child who was seen in a viral, sexually explicit video.

The Police condemned what it called the ‘exploitation’ of the four-year-old child, adding that the child’s father is connected with the incident.

This was made known in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, and shared on X on Sunday.

The FPPRO expressed shock and concern over the exploitation of the child, who had an Instagram handle #officialsarah_ig, and condemned the actions.

According to him, preliminary investigations revealed the involvement of the child’s father, who has been arrested at the Auchi Divisional Police Headquarters, Edo State Police Command.
