Edo GBV Commissioner Takes Over Child In Viral Inappropriate Contents From Police

The Edo State Police Command has moved quickly to resolve the upsetting occurrence concerning the indecent pictures that went viral and showed a 4-year-old girl under the Instagram account @officialsarah_ig.

According to a press release on Tuesday, 14th May 2024 signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said that on Sunday, May 12, 2024, public outrage erupted as a result of these images, leading to the identification and subsequent arrest of Musa Suleiman, a 27-year-old resident of Edo State, believed to be linked to the incident. The preliminary investigation further revealed that Musa Suleiman is the father of the young child known as Sarah.

In response to the urgent need for protection and care of the child involved, the Commissioner of Police, Edo State Police Command, CP Funsho Adegboye oversaw a handover on May 13, 2024, at approximately 3:00 PM in his office at the State Headquarters in Benin City. Baby Sarah was entrusted into the custody of the Honourable Commissioner of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) for Edo State, Hon. Christabel Elawu, for specialized care.


Meanwhile, Musa Suleiman remains under discreet investigation at the State Criminal Investigation Department to ascertain the full extent of his involvement in this distressing situation.

The handover ceremony was attended by the Command’s management team, officials from the Edo State Gender-Based Violence department, alongside members of the Edo State Coalition of Civil Society.

While we appreciate the continued support and cooperation of the public in addressing such critical issues, we urge Nigerians to always say something when they see something.
