The Kaduna State Police Command has arrested the proprietors of a torture house disguised as an Islamic School in the state.

The raid on the torture house happened last week when Police got an intel of the activities of the owners.

According to reports, about hundreds of men and boys – some reportedly aged as young as 5 – held in atrocious conditions at a facility proprietors described as a religious school and rehabilitation centre, News24.com reports.

Inmates were discovered chained to metal railings and with their hands and feet shackled together. Some bore scars from alleged beatings while other recounted being sexually abused.

“If they caught you if you want to run away from this place, they would hang you, they would chain you,” one of the victims Abdallah Hamza said.

The shocking revelations made headlines but activists insisted they were symptomatic of abuses that have long-riddled a system beyond official control.

Private Islamic schools – known locally as Almajiri schools – are widespread across mainly Muslim northern Nigeria, where poverty levels are high and government services often lacking.

The authorities have estimated that there are more than nine million students enrolled at the institutions.

“The latest example from Kaduna represented the worst of the system and very inhumane conditions,” Mohammed Sabo Keana, team lead at the Abuja-based Almajiri Child Rights Initiative NGO, told AFP.

“But they are a clear manifestation of what a lot of children go through – including being made to beg on the streets, subjected to violence, sleeping in the worst conditions imaginable and living with terrible sanitation levels.”

  1. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, RELIGION IS SUPREME. IT SUPERSEDES THE POWERS OF THE GOVERNMENT. AND SO CANNOT BE TORCHED, CANNOT BE DISMANTLED.

    IN AFRICA, RELIGION IS A CURSE. NO LONGER DO WE THINK RATIONALLY. WITH ARCANE EVIL STARRING US IN THE FACE, WE LOOK ELSE WHERE AND DO NOTHING.CALL FOR A MOVE AGAINST SUCH INSTITUTIONS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.RELIGIOUS WARS.

    BIGOTRY IN NIGERIA AGAINST THE BACK DROP OF RELIGION IS SATANIC AND WE KNOW IT NOT. OTHERWISE WHY THIS ROTTEN EGG,BEING ALLOWED TO FESTER IN THE COUNTRY.

    I NOW HAVE FOUND ONE MAJOR REASON, WHY SOME NIGERIANS WOULD PREFER TO LIVE AND DIE IN SOUTH AFRICA, XENOPHOBIA, AFRICAPHOBIA, NIGERIAPHOBIA OR NOT.

    PEOPLE ARE CHAINED, MANACLED AND IMPRISONED IN THE NAME OF RELIGION AND THE ARM OF THE GOVERNMENT IS BOTH SHORT AND WEAK TO DELIVER THESE PEOPLE FROM THEIR OPPRESSORS.

    MY GOD WHERE ARE YOU? AND WHY ALL THESE? PEOPLE CREATED IN YOUR OWN IMAGE AND LIKENESS?

    NOAH’S WORLD WAS TERMINATED DUE THE CONTINUAL EVIL IN THE LAND BACK THEN. TODAY, MAN’S IN HUMANITY AGAINST MAN IS SPIRALLYING UPWARDS AT THE DIZZYING SPEED OF 1000 KM PER HOUR.ON A COLLISION COURSE THAT WILL REVERBERATE ALL OVER THE WORLD IF YOU FAIL TO SHOW UP SOONEST.

    WILL YOU NOT VISIT THE WORLD AGAIN? WE ARE DECIMATING OUR SELVES DAILY FOR INCONSEQUENTIAL REASONS.WHEN YOU COME WILL YOU FIND ANY LEFT? CAIN STARTED IT,PASS IT UNTO LAMECH AND EVER SINCE THEN KILLING ONE ANOTHER HAS BEEN WITH US.

    HEAVENLY FATHER,PLEASE SAVE US FROM OUR SELVES BEFORE WE PERISH.

  2. Well spoken because all I could think of as well is religion and slavery under it. Why oh why even the evils of Noah’s time must have had an extent. These are basically children for God’s sake! Are the bearers(mothers) silenced too. I don’t even see any woman in the video. The north is in the dark/ they refused knowledge from the west. Let them be separated from Nigeria, I see why it is for these children to grow up and sleep with cows now.
