The Lagos State Police Command had rescued 28 persons that included 13 teenagers found in chains in a house at Oke-Ira, Ojodu area of the state.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Dolapo Badmos, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that the victims were rescued on Friday.

Badmos said that the command had also arrested one Emmanuel Adeyemi alleged to have been responsible for the crime.

She said that the rescued people comprised: 6 male adults, 9 female adults, 7 female children and 6 male children; adding that they had been taken into protective custody.

“On August 19, at about noon, the command received information that a child was in chain in a house at Oyinbo Unity Estate, Olamidun Close, Yakoyo, Oke-Ira, Ojodu.

Consequently, the command mobilized a team of policemen to the location, where a 17-year-old boy, (names withheld) was found in a room with a chain around his legs.

The victim was allegedly chained by the suspect who claimed to be his father to restrain him from going out.

Further search of the premises led to the discovery of 27 others chained by the same suspect,” Badmos said.

The image-maker said that the suspect was currently undergoing interrogations, stressing that the command was working assiduously to get to the roots of the matter.

    Police! Police! Police! When will you guys ever get it right? You don’t take someone who has been chained for God-knows-how-long into protective custody. You take them to a hospital first thing first. They should be dehydrated, malnourished or traumatized. Tend to their physical and psychological needs. Bring a psychologist to analyse and counsel them. Feed them and get them fresh clothes. If they do not need to be hospitalized, then you can take them into protective custody. The NPF I know will never do these things. They have tried sha but we need to start copying western practices that are good. We like to copy a lot but we always copy the wrong things. As for the perpetrators of this heinous crime, they don’t belong to the human race and they should be treated as such.
