Torture: Bad Dad Chains His 13 Year Old Son After Accusing Him of Stealing His N2,000

Bad Dad, Adeoye Oreyomi
A 13 year-old who was chained by his father for stealing his N2,000.00 has been rescued by Policemen attached to the Shagamu Police Division of the Ogun State Command, yesterday.

Neighbours at 9, Dokun Street, Ewuga, Shagamu told Vanguard that the teenager was found naked on the bare floor with his hands and legs bound. They also said he had blood stains on his body.
When asked why he was in that position, he said that his father Adeoye Oreyomi, 41, accused him of stealing his N2,000.00.

A resident, Modupe Okesola, alleged that it was not the first time the teenager would be dehumanised by his father.

She said: “This is how this boy has been dehumanised by his father. Even if he stole, is this the way to discipline a child? He even padlocked the chains so that nobody can rescue him,”

“We had to call in the Police because we were afraid that the boy might die.”

The Divisional Police Officer, Shagamu Police Division, Aduroja Moses, reportedly led a team of Policemen to the house, from where the teenager was rescued and taken to hospital, while his father was arrested.

As at 6 pm yesterday, the boy was still being treated at an undisclosed hospital.

Confirming the incident, spokesman of the Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi said “The Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered that the suspect be charged to Court as soon as investigation is concluded.”

He said that the Command will not tolerate any act of lawlessness from anybody no matter how highly placed the person is.
