A father of six has been accused of carrying out a "crude" circumcision on a 10-month-old baby boy who had to be hospitalised and was "lucky to be alive".

Philip Ogbewe (54), calling himself "Dr Philip" but without any medical training, injured the infant while performing a home circumcision with a surgical blade, it is alleged.

He was refused bail at Dublin District Court after gardaí objected.

Mr Ogbewe (54), a Nigerian national of Greenlanes, Drogheda, Co Louth, is charged with assault causing harm to the infant at an address in the midlands on a date in December 2015.
