She trusted him with all her heart. She considered him to be her father as well and she did all he said believing he was right.

Ashiru Suleiman was said to have defiled his 4-yr-old grand-daughter who came visiting on holiday.

Reports suggest Suleiman, who resides in the Sabongari area of Kano had lured the minor and his neighbour’s daughter, aged 5, into Shari’ah court premises.

He had raped his grand-daughter and was about to rape his neighbour’s daughter when he was caught.

The girl was rushed to a hospital for treatment after she sustained internal injuries.

Suleiman was arrested and was charged before a Kano Magistrate court.

When the charge was read to the accused on Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to the one-count charge.

The presiding judge, Magistrate Aisha Muhammad Yahaya, ordered that the accused be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case to 30th July for sentencing.
