Nigerian mom charged with murdering 4-year-old son in UK

A Nigerian woman charged with murdering a four-year-old boy is the victim's mother, a court has heard.

Oluwakemi Badare, 36, is accused of killing Kingswealth Bayode at her home in Plumstead, south-east London at the weekend.

Police had previously stated only that the pair were related, and did not name either party.

Badare did not appear either in person or remotely from Bronzefield Prison for the 10-minute administrative hearing at the Old Bailey today, although she was represented by a lawyer.

The court was told that emergency services were called to the address in Invermore Place on Sunday shortly before 8am, where the boy was found dead.   

Badare was arrested at the scene and taken into custody before being charged later on Sunday. 

She subsequently appeared at Bromley Magistrates' Court on Monday and was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey today.  

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out tomorrow.

Judge Anthony Leonard QC listed the case for a plea hearing on March 17.
