Men of the Ogun State Police Command have rescued a 13-year-old child in Sagamu who was chained hands and feet by his father.

The boy’s father, identified as Adeoye Oreyomi (41), has also been arrested by the police for “dehumanizing” his son, Demola Oreyomi.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement, said the suspect who resides at No. 9, Dokun Street, Ewuga in Sagamu, claimed that the boy stole his N2,000. Abimbola added that this prompted the father to stripe the boy naked, tie both hands and legs with chain and padlocked it.


Neighbours who feared that the boy might die because of the torture, alerted the police at the Sagamu Divisional Headquarters where Aduroja Moses mobilised a team of officers to the scene and met the boy soaked in his own blood.

He was quickly rescued and taken to the Owokoniran hospital in Sagamu for treatment.
