Again, another 15-year old captive liberated in Kano (Video)


A 35-years-old man identified as Ibrahim Lawan, allegedly held in captivity for 15 years by his father at Sheka quarters within Kano metropolis has been rescued by the police.

A video clip circulating shows how operatives of the police in the state evacuated the man on a stretcher from an uncompleted apartment into a waiting ambulance to an undisclosed hospital for medical attention.

It was reliably gathered that Lawan was 20-years-old when he was locked up in captivity.

His father simply identified as “Malam Lawan” is the chief imam of a mosque in the state.

It was gathered that the detectives attached to the Kano state Headquarters of the state Command Bompai rescued the 35 years old man around 11:45 am on Sunday.

The spokesman of the Kano State Police Command, Mr Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, confirmed the incident in Kano on Sunday.

Abdullahi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said the victim, Lawan, had since been moved to the hospital for medical attention, adding that investigation had been launched into the matter.

Lawan’s rescue was coming barely four days after (Thursday), one Ahmed Aminu, 30-years-old, confined by his father, Aminu Farawa in a garage was also rescued by the police in the state.
