The NSCDC Deputy Commandant gave credits to an intelligence report that led to the rescue of these 11 inmates, he also added that the inmates are between the age grade of 11 and 40 years.

“We busted two of the centres in Limanchi Corner and Marmara Centres all in Zaria and evacuated 11 inmates ranging from 11-40  years of age from the two centres while one other centre had released their inmates following information that other centres have been busted but we arrested the operator,” he said.

Onyema also said that the five operators of the centres and the victims in their custody would be handed over to the Ministry of Human Services and Social Development for protective custody and prosecution.

The State Deputy Governor, Dr. Hadiza Balarabe in company with the State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan and the Commissioner for Human Services and Social development Hajia Hafsat Baba were at the Headquarters of the NSCDC.

They all condemned the inhuman treatment meted out to victims in the name of rehabilitation.

Kaduna State Deputy Governor condemned the inhuman treatment against a fellow human being.

Balarabe while speaking with newsmen, assured that the government would take necessary actions against the operators while the victims would be provided necessary medical care before being handed over to their parents.

She urged parents to desist from taking their children to such centres, else they would be made to face the full weight of the law.

One of the victims,  a 30-year-old Abdullahi Ishola from Osun State told newsmen that he was lured to the centre be a family member.

According to him, “A family member just took me there and all of a sudden, I found myself in chains.

“My legs and hands were changed and ever since then, I was subjected to inhuman treatment. I was beaten regularly and denied food for several days,” he said.

Ishola, who claims to hold a National Diploma in Mass Communications from Iree Polytechnic in Osun State, expressed gratitude at finally regaining his freedom.
