Men of the Kano Police Command have rescued another man who has been in chains for over 15 years.
The man identified as Ibrahim Lawan and said to be in his 30s, was reportedly chained by his father in his apartment in Sheka quarters within Kano metropolis.
He looked emaciated and weak when he was rescued. He was rushed to the Nasarawa hospital in Kano where he is currently being treated. The reason Ibrahim’s father locked him up is yet unknown.

The police had also rescued a 10-year-old Down syndrome patient who was chained up by his father and stepmother in an animal store for over two years in Kebbi.
