The Niger state police have rescued 15 almajiris from a torture center in the state where they were reportedly dehumanized by their master.
The children who are between the ages of 2 and 10, had their legs bound with chain. Niger state police spokesperson, ASP Wasiu Abiodun said the victims have been handed over to the Niger State Child Rights’ Agency.
“Police Operatives attached to ‘A’ Division Suleja acting on reliable information received, arrested 46-year-old Umar Ahmed of Anguwan Gwari Suleja, for keeping about 15 children in a dehumanizing condition in the guise of being an Almajirai School.”
Some of the children were spotted with injuries and some of the instruments used in torturing the kids have been recovered.
The Police Spokesman further disclosed that the case is under investigation and the suspect will soon be arraigned in court for prosecution as soon as investigation is concluded.
