Mallam Muhammadu Ujudud, the father who chained his daughter up for two years over alleged refusal to go along with a forced marriage, has died in the custody of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Person (NAPTIP), Kano State command. 

The Commandant of the Agency, Alhaji Shehu Umar, confirmed the death saying the man died on Friday, September 27th at Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital Kano.

He said, “the man was brought to the command around 6 pm and while at the command he sought our permission to ease himself and before you know it, he slumped and we rushed him to the hospital where he later passed on while receiving treatment.

“His wife has confirmed to us that prior to his arrest, the man was suffering from heart problem and blood pressure,”

The NAPTIP commandant however assured that the agency would continue with its investigation into the circumstances that led to the chaining of the deceased’s children.

“We will go back to the village and find out from the man’s neighbors about his behaviors and why he chained his children. His death will not stop us from furthering our investigation,” he assured.

Mallam Ujudud was arrested in Rinji village of Madobi Local Government Area of Kano State by the NAPTIP’s official for allegedly chaining his daughter for allegedly rejecting forced marriage.
