Police uncover centre with 300 inmates in Daura


The police in Katsina State on Monday 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.



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



Last month, the police in Kaduna State rescued over 300 boys from an Islamic school, where they were allegedly chained,   sexually abused and tortured.



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



The centre is located at Nasarawa Quarters,  in the Sabongari area of  Daura.



Daura is President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown.



After inspecting the rehabilitation centre, Buba ordered the  Daura Divisional Police Officer, ASP M.O.Wakili,  cordon off the centre.



The CP  said, “We learnt that the inmates here are over 300.  The inmates revolted yesterday (Sunday) because of the inhuman treatment they were being subjected to.



“Some of the inmates escaped while the ones you are seeing, about 60,  stayed back.



“The inmates are from various parts of Nigeria, including Katsina,  as well as from  Niger Republic. I will meet with the Emir of Daura and Governor Aminu Masari on the issue. We will do the profiling of the remaining inmates  to determine where they are from and we will thereafter appeal to their parents and their  guardians to come and collect them.”
