If we are inside the house, he would come outside and if we are outside he would remain inside pretending to be teaching the kids lessons. When I discovered what he was doing to the kids, I did not hesitate to ask my daughter, and she gave details of what transpired between her, the other two under-age girls and Usabatu.”

Idirisu made a call to parents to “always put an eye on their wards.”
