Kebbi: 10-Year-Old Boy Locked Up With Animals For 2 Years In His Father’s House Gets Rescued [VIDEO]
A 10-year-old boy identified as Jibril Aliyu who was allegedly tied up for two years by his two stepmothers in Kebbi state has been rescued.
The tag #JusticeForJibril trended on Twitter after his story was shared by a user Manir Jega.
According to Jega, the boy hails from Badariya Area of Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State.
Aliyu was allegedly subjected to inhuman treatment by his step-mother, following the death of his mother, two years ago.
He was forced to feed on the remnant food of the animals he was tied with and even ate his excreta until he was rescued by some human right activists.
Aliyu was experiencing such cruel and monstrous treatment while his father was living in the same house with them without intervening.
His two stepmothers, together with his father have been arrested and are now in police custody.
The young boy is said to be undergoing treatment and rehabilitation at the Federal Medical Center, Birnin Kebbi.
Below is the video of the young boy after being rescued, as shared by Manir Jega:
