15-year-old girl locked in a room for 10 years by her parents has been rescued by the police

Parents are meant to take adequate care of their children but some parents are doing the direct opposite. The Kano state police command has stated that they have rescued a little girl of 15 years who has been locked for 10 years by her own parents.

The police stated that the little girl named, Aisha was looked with proper feeding.

The command's spokesperson said that the girl's mother has been arrested while her father is no where to be found.

Here is the statement by the police, “The Kano State Police Command wishes to inform members of the general public that on the 19/04/2021 at about 1100hrs, information received revealed that one Aisha Jibrin, ‘f’, 15 years old of Darerawa Quarters, Fagge LGA, Kano State was solitarily confined for ten (10) years in a room by her biological parents, one Mohd Jibrin, ‘m’, and Rabi Mohd, ‘f’, of the same address inside their house without proper feeding and health care.

“On receipt of the report, the Commissioner of Police, Kano State Command, CP Sama’ila Shu’aibu Dikko, fsi, raised and instructed a medical team and a team of detectives to proceed to the scene, rescue the victim and arrest the culprits.

“The teams immediately swung in to action. The victim was rescued and rushed to Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital, Kano and admitted.”

This is a very sad news. The child's parents should be well dealt with in order to prevent future occurrence. People who can't take care of children should stop giving birth to children. It a very bad thing to bring an innocent child into the world for he or she to suffer. What is most painful is that they are the child's biological parents. This move by the Kano state police is very commendable. Many children and even adults are facing this same challenge but the authorities don't know about them.

I believe many more victims will be rescued if the security operatives create a unit which specializes in checking how children and their parents/guardians are living.
