Highlighting Nigeria's abusive 'Islamic schools' challenge

Published
Nigeria's government is under pressure to take urgent action against schools that are abusing children in the name of religion.

Over the last one month, police have conducted three raids on Islamic schools in the northern part of the country, where men and boys were chained to walls, molested and beaten, according to police sources.

The total number of people who have been freed from abusive conditions in these schools is nearly topping 1000.
