Some environmental officers in Kaduna state, Nigeria, have rescued a middle-aged man who was locked up inside a room for twenty years.
The officers found the man in a room inside a house situated in Benin street, central part of Kaduna metropolis on Wednesday, October, and a pungent odor was said to be oozing out of the room.
The man whose name was not disclosed has reportedly been eating, sleeping, urinating and defecating in the room for the past twenty years.
The spokesperson of the environmental agency, who confirmed the shocking incident said,
“Today we came to this house in search of beverages that were usually kept in residential houses without proper storage facilities when we saw a naked man locked up in a room,” he said.
“We found that he was in an uncomfortable position. The odour coming out from the room was unbearable.
“Later, we broke the room and brought him out. He was behaving like an animal. It was then we learnt that he was kept in the room for twenty years.
“We also found out he was fed in the room. He urinates and passes his faeces in the same room.
“The Magaji Gari police in the heart of the Kaduna Central area were later invited and they took him away.”
