Nigerian Soldiers Rescue Malnourished Child Locked Up In a House In Ebonyi State

Nigerian soldiers attached to the 24 Support Engineer Regiment Abakaliki have rescued a child locked up in a house in Ebonyi.



The child was found during a search-and-rescue operation for a soldier, L/Cpl Oluwabukunmi Fadoju, who went missing since September 17, 2018.

On arrival at Onunwakpu in Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State on November 16, 2018, the soldiers were said to have discovered the malnourished child locked up in a house.


The child was seated on what appeared to be charms and was picking leaves from the ground to eat.

The charms were burnt and the child was given some bananas and biscuits. He was, thereafter, taken to the Medical Reception Station for treatment.

The child has been handed over to the Ebonyi State Government.

News of the child's discovery was announced by the Army on its Twitter handle: @HQNigerianArmy
