55

The police in Katsina  State has arrested  the  owner of a rehabilitation centre in Daura where over 300 inmates were being  subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment. 

Some of the  teachers were also  said to  have sexually molested the inmates at the centre owned by Mallam Bello Maialmajri, which is located at Nasarawa Quarters,  in the Sabongari area of  Daura the hometown of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari.

The 78-year-old cleric was arrested yesterday alongside  two other men, whose names were not disclosed.

The  Katsina State   Commissioner of Police, Sanusi Buba, who  led the operation  at about  1pm yesteday, expressed shock at the new discovery.

It would be recalled that a similar raid last month in Kaduna State saw the police rescue over 300 boys  from an Islamic school, where they  were allegedly chained,   sexually abused and tortured.

The story this time is particularly similar, as some of the inmates claim their parents brought them to the centre for either reformation from old habits, or to learn Islamic teachings.
