The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, yesterday ordered the immediate release of Ugo Madugba, a man.

Ugo Madugba is a 30 year old man illegally detained by the Nigerian Police after they were hired by his wife’s parents to lock him up for marrying their daughter without their consent.

Madugba’s wife, 28 year old Nono Orji, who is a medical doctor, exposed the crime in a Facebook post on Thursday that her husband was arrested on the orders of her parents who have been against their marriage from day one.

She said,

“The Nigerian Police in Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi just arrested an innocent 30-year-old man called Ugo Madugba for an offence of marriage. Marriage has become a crime in Nigeria according to Dolphin police station in Ikoyi. Mr Ugo got married to Dr Nono a 28 year old medical Doctor.
