Somewhere in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Lawal Saleh, a husband to four wives and father to 44 children, locks up depressed sister in solitary confinement to prevent her from getting back with her estranged husband.

Somewhere in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, a man locked up his sister for two years for wishing to return to her ex-husband. Hassana Saleh is a mother of four whose husband had divorced. She tried to get back with her former husband, but this did not sit well with her brother Lawal Saleh, who himself is a father to 44 children and a husband to four wives. For this reason, Lawal locked Hassana in a single room, where she had to eat, urinate, and defecate for two years.

Rabi Ibrahim, the founder of Arrida Relief Foundation, came to Hassana's rescue. Also, Rabi confirmed the story, stating that it was because Hassana wanted to go back to her husband that made her brother lock her up. The family believed that her ex-husband no longer loved her and had divorced her, which they said led to her depression. Consequently, they believed they didn't have a choice. “They, however, decided to lock her up in a room because they felt they had no other option,” Rabi said.

Thankfully, Arrida Relief Foundation received word of the matter and came to rescue Hassana. However, her brother narrated the matter a bit differently to newsmen at the Police headquarters in the state capital on Tuesday. He said that he was away when his sister was divorced by her husband and she ran away to an unknown location. When they found her they brought her to his house in Rigasa. She was remarried to another husband but she kept running away. Each time, she tried to get back to the father of her children.
