A young man named Basty, 23, has been locked up by his father, Mallam Abass Abdulai for 20 years due to his epileptic condition.
For the past 20 years, Basty has lived in a locked room where he eats, sleeps and defecates with no opportunity to come out, reports Myjoyonline.
Naija News learned also that his food was passed to him through a window, which happens to be his only source of light.
According to his father, Basty was isolated because of his epileptic condition
He said his son is unable to independently think for himself, understand what he is told or take care of himself.
According to him, his son also defecates anywhere so he thought to restrict him to a room was the best option to prevent him from being attacked by his epilepsy in the open.
Basty’s father said his mother abandoned him when he was just 18 months old and had not returned since. Basty was raised by his late grandmother.
