Photos: Police Arrest 9yrs Old Boy In Delta State, Keep Him Behind Bars

Is there no place to take kids to? This unfortunate incident was shared by Prince Harrison...

'9 YEAR OLD CLINTON ARRESTED BY B DIVISIONAL POLICE OFFICERS IN ASABA IN PLACE OF HIS MOTHER.

His Crime: his mother got into a fight with a neighbor. The neighbor called Police and the mother ran away. B Divisional Police Officers arrested Clinton in place of his mother.

Clinton is currently Behind Bars and refused bail by the Investigating Police Officer.

The IPO's words: "We can't release the little boy until we see his mother".


The question is; is this action by the Delta State Police Command permissible in Nigerian law?
