Katsina state police command has rescued 16-year-old boy, Sadiku Umar, who was locked up in a cage for two years by his father, Salisu Umar,  in Daura, Katsina state.

According to neighbors, Umar locked up his son who is physically challenged in the cage since he was 14, and fed him like a ”dog.” The boy was rescued when members of the non-governmental organization, Save the Children International (SCI), were notified and thereafter alerted the police.

An SCI agent in Daura, Aminu Gambo said

 “the man told the police that he decided to put the boy in a cage because there was no longer space for him in the two-room apartment housing the entire family of 15 including his 12 other children.

He was detained at the police station in Daura for a day and then moved to the police headquarters in Katsina and later released on the condition that he would no longer subject the boy to such inhuman treatment.”
