House of horror! over 300 chained persons rescued from Islamic centre ( photos)
The police in Kaduna on Thursday raided a home with over 300 people in Rigasa in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The cops freed about 300 people who were chained in the house, including children.
They were said to be from Burkina Faso, Mali and other African countries, according to the force.
The children were said to have confessed to being abused homosexually.
Some of the others were said to have been subjected to daily recitation of the Holy Quran and prayers with torture.
According to Bello Hamza, a 42-year-old inmate, he was tricked to the centre by his family who are interested in taking “over my share of our inheritance.” “I have spent three months here. I am supposed to be pursuing my Masters at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.
I have spent three months here with chains on my legs. “They claim to be teaching us Quran and Islam, but they do a lot of things here. “They subject the younger ones to homosexuality.
They give us very poor food and we only eat twice a day — 11:00am and 10:00pm.
The proprietor of the centre called Malam said all they did in the centre was the teaching of Islam.
The Kaduna State Commissioner for Police, Ali Janga, confirmed the incident.
