Bauchi State: A Father Chained His 6-Year-Old Son Until Police Arrest Him

The Bauchi State Police Command has apprehended Mamuda Abubakar for allegedly confining his 6-year-old son inside a room at their home in Giade Local Government Area of the state.

According to SP Ahmed Mohammed, the command’s spokesperson, who confirmed the incident in a statement on Monday, July 8, police received a report of child abuse on Sunday. Detectives promptly responded to the scene and rescued the young victim.

Further investigation revealed that Abubakar and the child’s mother had separated five years earlier. Abubakar reportedly became enraged when his son insisted on visiting his grandfather’s house despite his warnings about the behavior of the other children there. This anger allegedly led Abubakar to chain his son. 

“On 07 July 2024, a report of child abuse was received by the command. The report indicates that on 06 July 2024, at about 1720hrs, one Mamuda Abubakar, a 30-year-old resident of Abbo, Chinkani Ward, Giade LGA, Bauchi State, tied his biological son, Adamu Mamuda alias Jumba, aged 6 years old, with a chain inside a room at their residence,” the statement read. 

“Upon receiving the information, a team of detectives were immediately dispatched to the scene of the reported incident. The child was successfully rescued, and the suspect, Mamuda Abubakar, was effectively arrested and is currently under investigation at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), state headquarters in Bauchi.

“According to the suspect, he confined the minor to prevent him from going to his maternal grandfather’s house. The suspect and the minor’s mother separated five years ago, and the mother has since remarried and no longer lives with her father. He explained that his son should not visit the grandfather’s house due to the lack of morality among the children there.

“When the son insisted on going, the suspect became furious and ultimately chained the minor. The Bauchi State Police Command remains committed to the protection of all citizens, especially vulnerable children. We urge the public to report any incidents of abuse or maltreatment to the nearest police station.”
