Malam Nasir El-Rufai, the Kaduna State Governor, approved the raiding of another rehabilitation home.
Policemen, on the order of the governor, rescued over 147 persons from Malam Nigga Rehabilitation Centre in Rigasa in Igabi Local Government Area (LGA), Kaduna State.
According to reports, over 147 persons, including 125 men and 22 women, were rescued. There were four foreigners from Cameroon and Niger Republic as well as some underaged children.
The police raided the centre and rescued the captives before quarantining the place shortly thereafter. The rescued captives were then taken into the protective custody of the Kaduna State Government.
Recall, three weeks ago, the police raided an Islamic centre in the same Rigasa in Igabi Local Government Area (LGA) Kaduna State where 300 persons were rescued.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai has declared a war on these religious extremists in charge of the Islamic Rehabilitation Centres.
