The Police command in Ekiti on Monday rescued two-year old twin babies after they were locked up in a room by their mother for three days.
Abutu said the command acted on a distress call by a good Samaritan at about 9:45 hours and rescued the babies who were without food for three days.
He said a lady, who was later identified as Joy Fatoba of Igbara-odo, locked up her twin babies in her room and even threatened to kill them should anyone compel her to open the door.
According to him, the Command’s Rapid Response Squad (RRS), upon the receipt of the information, swung into action, rushed to the scene and tactically rescued the two kids.
The Police image maker said the two-year old kids appeared unhealthy when they were rescued and could neither walk nor stand on their own due to dehydration and undernutrition.
He said the twins upon their rescue were immediately rushed to the hospital for medical examination and treatment.
He used the opportunity to extend the command’s appreciation to the good Samaritan for volunteering the useful and timely information that led to the rescuing of the babies.
Abutu enjoined the residents to always and quickly draw the attention of the nearest Police Station to any suspicious happenings in their locality or call 08062335577. (NAN)
