More than 60 men and boys freed from ‘inhumane’ Islamic school, says Nigerian police

An estimated 100 young males may have been ‘sexually abused’ after their release from an Islamic school in northeast Nigeria, and they may be ‘living in shame’ because authorities were warned they may be ‘re-incorporated’ into criminal gangs, according to members of the Christian community.

In recent weeks, Christian community members and rights groups have voiced fears that the youth, who were rescued from the infamous Umarji Academy, will be re-assigned to criminal activity if they are released.

But community members, who have been trying desperately to locate the missing boys, have now raised the spectre of another horror they claim happened there, in which they have evidence that at least 20 of its pupils may be missing or dead.

But senior policemen are not letting down their guard and have insisted on continuing to search for the missing for as long as they can, even when some families complain that the probe has become unfair to relatives of the missing who have repeatedly declined to give evidence, according to the Christian Daily Post (CDP).
