Man Chains 10-Year-Old Son For Skipping School And Keeping Late Nights

A dad, identified as Malam Abubakar Mohammed, has been arrested for putting his 10 years old son, Mohammed, in chains and locking him up in the house in Minna, Niger State.

According to source, the man took the action over Mohammed’s absenteeism from the UBE Primary School, Tunga in Minna, and refusal to attend Islamic school.

Mr. Abubakar said he took the action as corrective measures because the son is fond of absconding from school and keeping late nights, adding that all the entreaties for him to change failed.

He said he chained and locked him up on Wednesday morning after he went for the early morning prayers and did not see him in the mosque.

“We looked for him everywhere but couldn’t find him. In fact, he apparently did not sleep at home; so I went to where they normally hang out with his friends and saw him sleeping.

I took him home and decided to use chain to prevent him from going anywhere until I returned from a naming ceremony but when I got back, I learnt some people from the human rights have taken him,” he explained.
