The Edo State Police Command has arrested the husband of Mrs Toluige Olokoobi, after she commits suicide.

Olokoobi was the mother to Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, the little boy whose video went viral after begging his mother with “mummy be calming down” in 2020.

Oreofeoluwa became popular on social media platforms after a video went viral of him in tears in an attempt to confidently appeal to his mother who scolded him.

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu was inspired by the video at the time as he used it to send an Eid-el-Kabir message to Muslims and Lagos residents to maintain calm during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sad news hit social media on Tuesday that the boy’s mother had killed herself. Meanwhile, confirming Olokoobi’s death in a chat with BBC, the spokesperson of the Edo state police command, Chidi Nwabuzor, said her husband has been arrested and detained for questioning.
