A team of detectives from Isheri Osun Police Station led by the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Chike Ibe, have busted an illegal detention camp at 26 Alafia Street, Oriofe Ijegun Isheri, rescuing 15 inmates.
The camp was operated by one Prophet Sunday Joseph Ojo (58) and 10 others who were arrested during the police raid.
Some of the victims, who were chained, were said to have spent five years in the detention camp. The victims are between ages 19 and 50, male and female.
Some of them where brought by their families to seek spiritual help from mental illness and other diseases.
The Prophet said he has been in the healing ministry since 1986, and that he chained the inmates in order to prevent escape.
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bala Elkana, said “Investigation is ongoing. Police are working closely with other agencies of government to provide adequate medical attention and shelter to the victims.”
