The posts quickly went viral, sparking outrage and widespread concern for the child’s well-being. Authorities apprehended Suleiman on Sunday following the public outcry.

In a video released by the state police command on Tuesday, the father said, “I am used to watching other people’s content creation; comedy, and those other people, so I think that she is too small, so she cannot be doing comedy, so I decided to bring her up in a model way, to be dressing like a model, and to look like a model.

“This month is her birthday, May 28. So, I wanted to mark her birthday bash on her Instagram.

The police officer questioning the father questioned the morality of his actions, asking, “So, do you think you have done a good thing for the life of that young girl?”


The father responded, “To my understanding, I want her to become a celebrity.”

The incident sparked widespread concern and condemnation from child protection advocates and the general public, raising concerns about minor exploitation because the child was seen dancing inappropriately with her father in numerous videos, among other issues.
