A mother of four locked in solitary confinement for 2 years by brother


A mother of four, Hassana Saleh, who was kept in solitary confinement for two years by her brother at Rigasa in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, was on Tuesday rescued by a non-governmental organisation with the assistance of the state police command.


Hassana was locked up in a single-room apartment, where she urinated and defecated for two years, by her brother, Lawal Saleh.

It was gathered that Hassana’s offence was that she wanted to go back to her ex-husband, who had earlier divorced her, but the brother opposed the move.

The founder of the Kaduna-based NGO, the Arrida Relief Foundation, Rabi Ibrahim, who facilitated her rescue, stated that Lawal claimed to have locked up Hassana because she was adamant about going to her ex-husband’s house.


Ibrahim said the victim would be taken to hospital for proper medical attention and called on well-meaning Nigerians to come to her aid.

The victim’s brother, who is married to four wives, admitted to locking up Hassana for seven months and not two years as claimed.


Lawal, a father of 41, told journalists at the state police command headquarters that he was away when his sister was thrown out of her husband’s house.

According to him, he had to lock up Hassana in a room because he could no longer cater for her needs.

He added that two of his other sisters usually clean the room, where Hassana was kept. Punch
