A man named Musa Suleman called the attention of the authorities to the alleged abuse of a 4-year-old girl who happens to be his daughter. Videos and pictures trending on social media show the minor in revealing clothes while in the company of some men, including her father, in a hotel in Auchi, Edo State. In an earlier statement, Suleman clarified that the reason behind his actions was that he was not getting support from social media users towards his passion, so he decided to “promote” his child’s modelling career by posting contents of the child that promoted nudity and child sexual abuse, like attending clubs, seductive dance, and others.

Incident Overview:

  • Musa Suleman, the father of a four-year-old, has been arrested by the Edo Police Command for engaging his daughter, Sarah Suleman, in adult content on social media.
  • Suleman posted indecent pictures of his daughter on her Instagram page, exposing sensitive parts of her body.
  • The videos generated concerns from Nigerians who feared his daughter might be involved in pornographic activities or sexually abused for monetary gains.
  • Suleman claimed his daughter’s mentor was a Malaysian influencer and adult movie actress, Siew Pui Yi.
  • Suleman’s actions were prompted by a lack of support from social media users for his modelling career.
  • The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) has condemned the father’s social media post of explicit photos of his four-year-old daughter.
  • The police enacted the arrest, and an investigation is ongoing.


“In light of the foregoing, the Force emphasises the need for establishing support structures for parents and guardians to ensure their children’s safety, mental health, and well-being. Carers must prioritise minors’ safety and seek assistance or guidance as needed.
It is equally critical that the general public actively speak out against such acts and report them to the appropriate authorities when they occur, instead of kicking against them passively.

ACP Adejobi underscored the importance of educating the parents rather than immediately pursuing legal action, recognizing the act as a form of indecency and a potential threat to the child’s well-being. He emphasized the need to raise awareness about the implications of such actions and to provide guidance and support to prevent similar incidents in the future.
