The Kaduna State Police Command has rescued a woman who was locked up in a dark room by her biological brother for two years.

 

The police and an NGO, Arida Relief Foundation found the lady identified as Hassana Sale in a sad state in the room she was locked up in at Rigasa area of Kaduna by her brother Lawal Sale who never wanted her to go back to her ex-husband who divorced her. He has however been arrested.

 

Hajiya Rabi Salisu, founder of the NGO said Hassana became depressed after she got divorced but always visited her matrimonial home to see her four children.

 

“She visits the children on daily basis, so the elder brother and some of her relatives decided to lock her up in a dark room for two years so that she will not go back to her ex-husband.

“We have taken her to the hopital and when she becomes stable, she would be handed over to the state Ministry of Human Service and Social Development to pursue the matter,” she said.
