- Police raided the Koranic school in Kaduna after an anonymous tip-off
- The owner of the school and six staff have been arrested over the ‘slavery’
- The men and boys emerged with chains on their feet and horrific scars
More than 300 men and boys have been rescued from a ‘house of torture’ Islamic boarding school where they were detained and raped by staff for years in Kaduna, Nigeria.
Many were found chained up and the detainees, mostly children, said they had been tortured, sexually abused, starved and prevented from leaving.
Police raided a building in the city on Thursday where the victims were kept in ‘the most debasing and inhuman conditions in the name of teaching them the Koran and reforming them’, a police spokesperson said.
