Geller Report readers are long familiar with abuse and horrors children have to endure at some of these madrassas (Islamic schools). Nothing changes, because it is islamophobic to criticize Islam.
The school which has been operating for a decade, enrolled students brought by their families to learn the Quran.
300 young men are freed from a SECOND Nigerian Islamic boarding school where they were chained up and raped – following raid that shocked the world last month
- Police raided the school in Katsina state after some students escaped on Sunday
- More than 300 young men and boys had been shackled and sexually abused
- School was established by a Muslim cleric 40 years ago and teaches the Koran
- Families enrolled relatives to learn scripture and be treated for drug addiction
The men were shackled and tortured at the school where they had been enrolled by their families to learn the Koran. Many had also been sent there to be treated for drug addiction.
The news comes after nearly 500 men and young boys were freed from an Islamic boarding school in Kaduna, around 280 miles south of Daura, where students had been chained, hung from the ceiling and beaten, authorities said.

‘We learnt that the inmates here are over 300 and because of the inhuman treatments they are being subjected to they revolted yesterday (Sunday),’ Katsina police chief Sanusi Buba said.
‘Some of the inmates escaped while…about 60 of them stayed back,’ he said, with most of them found in chains.
Buba said the school was established by 78-year-old Muslim cleric, Bello Mai Almajirai, 40 years ago. He later transferred management of the school to his son.
He said the school enrolled students brought by their families to learn the Koran and be treated for drug addiction and other ailments.
Daura which lies 45 miles from the state capital and near the border with Niger, is the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The students are from ‘various parts of Nigeria’, including Katsina state and neighbouring Niger Republic, said the police chief.

According to Buba, the abused inmates were ‘subjected to inhuman conditions,’ with some of the students revealing that they were sodomised by their teachers.
Police will liaise with the state government to establish the identities of the young men and contact their families to return them home, he said.
Buba promised to arrest the proprietor and his teachers who managed to escape during the raid but will ‘face the full wrath of the law’.
On September 26, in nearby Kaduna state, police discovered nearly 500 men and young boys standing in rows wearing ankle shackles, while others had their hands chained. Other photos show the torture victims with horrific scars on their backs.
One victim even claimed that previous students had died from being tortured.
Parents have since been reunited with some of the children rescued by police at the Hajj transit camp.

Bello Hamza, 42, told The Nigerian Tribune: ‘I have spent three months here with chains on my legs. I am supposed to be pursuing my Masters in University Pretoria South Africa. I got admission to study Applied Mathematics, but here I am chained.

‘This is supposed to be an Islamic centre, but trying to run away from here attracts severe punishment; they tie people and hang them to the ceiling for that, but engaging in homosexuality attracts no punishment.’
Police had been tipped off by complaints from local residents who became suspicious of what was happening inside the school.
During the raid on the school, police said they found a ‘torture chamber’ where students were chained, hung and beaten.
