Operatives of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, have arrested a 62-year-old man in Kano State for chaining and locking up 16-year-old daughter, Fatima, for rejecting forced marriage, DAILY NIGERIAN reports.


The suspect Muhammad Ujujud, locked Binta up as punishment for refusing to accept a husband he forced on her. It was gathered that the man also locked his son, Shehu, in a separate cell in his house. Unfortunately, the boy died in detention recently.

Daily Nigerian reveals that a member of the community who secretly leaked the story explained that the man was notorious for meting out corporal punishment on his family and he was dreaded in the village.


According to the locals, Mr Ujudud only rarely fed his captive children with food. “He hardly gave them food to eat. They sleep and defecate in just one point,” said a neighbor.

Appearing pale and ill, NAPTIP officials then took Binta to a private hospital in Kano, where she is currently receiving treatments.
