WICKED SOUL!!! Man Arrested For Chaining A Minor In Bauchi

The Bauch State Police Command have arrested a second suspect, a 30-year-old man, for chaining a minor, just days after a 50-year-old man was detained for a similar offense.

According to the Spokesman of the Command, Ahmed Wakili, in a statement made available to journalists on Monday, a report of child abuse was received on July 7, 2024.

The report indicated that on July 6, 2024, at around 5:20 PM, 30-year-old Mamuda Abubakar from Abbo, Chinkani Ward, Giade Local Government Area, Bauchi State, chained his 6-year-old son, Adamu Mamuda alias Jumba, inside a room at their residence.

Upon receiving the information, detectives were immediately dispatched to the scene.

The child was successfully rescued, and Mamuda Abubakar was arrested.

The suspect was said to have claimed he confined his son to prevent him from visiting his maternal grandfather’s house.

The statement revealed that the suspect and the child’s mother separated five years ago, and she has since remarried and no longer lives with her father.

However, when the child insisted on visiting his grandfather, the suspect became furious and ultimately chained him.

SP Ahmed Wakili said the suspect is currently under investigation at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Bauchi.

He added that the arrests were part of the Bauchi State Police Command’s relentless efforts to maintain security in the state.
