A 12-year-old girl identified as Joy Emmanuel has been rescued by the police after she was caged for eight months by her guardians identified as Bassey and Esther Emmanuel.
The young girl was at the suspect’s home in the Sokoto Cinema area in Sokoto North Local Government Area.
It was gathered that Joy was locked up and deprived of food because of her unstable mental condition.
The incident was confirmed in a statement by the spokesman of the state police command, ASP Sanusi Abubakar.
According to him, the victim was rescued on Thursday, May 13 while the suspects were arrested and detained at the Dadin Kowa police station.
The statement reads:
“They kept the girl in a cage at their compound and starved her of food for eight months.
When our men broke the door of the cage, the girl was too frail to walk because she was emaciated. We met her in a very horrible situation, urinating and excreting inside the cage.
The girl was taken to the specialist’s hospital for treatment.”
