The Katsina State Police Command says it has discovered a fake Islamic Rehabilitation Center, named Malam Bello Islamic Centre. this is coming barely two weeks after the Police uncovered a fake Islamic Center in Kaduna.
The centre, which is located in Nassarawa Quarters, Sabon-Gari, area of Daura, has over three hundred students.
The state Commissioner of Police Sanusi Buba, who led journalists for an on-the-spot assessment of the center, termed it as not only a replica of what transpired at the Kaduna center but the most dehumanizing habitation no human being can think of living in.
Buba said preliminary investigation showed that Malam Bello, a former Qur’anic teacher for close to 40 years, had been collecting children from their parents on a pretense promise to rehabilitate them, but does the opposite as nothing Islamic or moral teachings happens here.
He said the police command was alerted when the students revolted and resorted to violent protests with about 200 of them fleeing with the assistance of neighbours.
