“My neighbour, Zagi, who is a staff of Bosso Council has been running after my grand daughter and luring her with SIM cards and other things in order to have carnal knowledge of her.
“He denied it when I confronted him, but as far as I know, I am sure that my allegations are correct and I stabbed him severally to teach him a lesson
