A teenage boy identified as Sadiku Umar, has been rescued after he 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 16-year-old son who is physically challenged in the cage since he was 14, and fed him like a ”dog.”

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.”
