Aminu Farawa who locked and starved his biological son for seven years inside his car garage has been arrested by the Kano state Police command.

Recall that Salient Times reported that Aliyu, a resident of Farawa Babban Layi in Mariri quarters of Kumbotso local government area in Kano, was rescued by the police and human rights groups on Thursday evening.

According to a statement released on Friday by the Command spokesman, Abdullahi Haruna, the victim has been rescued and admitted at the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital in Kano for proper treatment.

According to Mr Aminu, he had had his son locked up for three years after suspecting him of drug abuse.

The State’s Commissioner of Police, Habu Sani has ordered the case transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.

Meanwhile reactions have trailed from twitter users;

What a world of inhumane! So many people are living in darkness…gross darkness. For a father to have chained or allowed his son to be in the gruesome position for days not to talk of years like this is truly living in darkness in the name of religion
