Things are really happening in Nigeria, and it seems like we’ve not seen the end of it. The Nigerian police force in Kano state has rescued another man who has been chained in a dingy room by his father for more than fifteen (15) years for crimes that is yet to be disclosed.
The man, who identified as Ibrahim Lawan and is said to be in his 30s, was reportedly chained for 15 years by his father in his apartment in Sheka quarters within Kano metropolis for reasons unknown.
He looked emaciated and weak when he was rescued by men of the Nigerian police force. He was rushed to the Nasarawa hospital in Kano where he is currently being treated for malnourishment, weakness, failed organs, etc. The reason Ibrahim’s father locked him up is yet unknown.
This sad news is coming just a few days after one Ahmed Aminu, a 30-year-old man was rescued after his father locked him up for seven years in Farawa Babban layi Mariri quarters of Kumbotso local government area.
The Nigerian police force had also rescued a 10-year-old boy with Down syndrome who was chained up by his father and stepmother in an animal store for over two years in Kebbi state because of the down syndrome.
