The Kaduna State Police Command have rescued a 67-year-old man who has been locked up in a room on Bayajidda road, for over 20 years.
The unclothed man, Ibrahim Ado was found on Wednesday, locked up in a room in Kaduna.
Occupants of the apartment fled when a police team arrived at the building.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Kaduna State, DSP Mohammed Jalige, told reportets that a thorough investigation would be conducted on the matter.
Some environmental health officers who were in the house on official duty, first discovered the victim.
“They reported to the Magajin Gari Police Division and the Commissioner of Police directed personnel to evacuate the victim.
“He also directed for a full-scale investigation of the matter to unravel the circumstances surrounding the issue and why the man was kept in isolation for this long,” Jalige added.
He said that the victim had been taken to the hospital for proper medical check and intervention.
