400 men and boys freed from Islamic ‘house of torture’

Some students rescued from the Islamic boarding school eat food at Ahmadu Bello Stadium after they were freed in a police raid

More than 400 boys and men were freed from an Islamic boarding school in Kaduna, Nigeria where they were chained up by staff and raped for years.

And now Nigerian authorities are scrambling to try and find their families.

The detainees were mostly children who told BBC that they had been starved, sexually abused, tortured, and prevented from leaving. 

On Thursday, police raided a city building where the victims were kept (as per a police spokesperson), “in the most debasing and inhuman conditions in the name of teaching them the Koran and reforming them.”

Police raided the school after a relative was denied access to the captives.

Ali Janga, Kaduna state’s chief of police, said they raided the house after receiving an anonymous tip-off on Thursday, and that the case was of ‘human slavery’.

He said the boys and men were from Mali, Burkina Faso, and other African countries. 

The students were enrolled in the school, which has been in operation for over a decade, by their families for learning the Koran and stop drug abuse. 

Seven staff members, including the school’s proprietor were arrested during the raid. The school’s owner claimed to have only taught teachings of Islam and labeled the accusations of sexual assault and torture as incorrect. 

However, the fact that students were kept in chains was acknowledged.

“You Are Chosen!” has 175 exciting pages to challenge Christians to become warriors for Christ.

For the second time in history, Christianity has become the most persecuted religion in the world - suffering from church bombings, targeted assassinations, lawsuits and incarcerations.

In today’s modern churches, few preachers ever spend time teaching Christians to live in a world that hates them - and targets them for their faith!

The properly trained warrior knows that Christ came to set fire to the Earth and that His Kingdom would suffer from oppression and violence.

They know Christ never came to bring world peace and that they must be prepared for persecution.

More than ever, Christians need to be properly trained and equipped. With the right guidance and armor, Christians can become warriors for Christ and confidently sing His praise, “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered.” (Ps. 68:1)

“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword,” Christ told his disciples. (Matt. 10:34 NASB)

“You Are Chosen!” focuses on the tools necessary for every Christian to stand firm and be equipped to scatter the enemies of Christ. As a Christian warrior you can be triumphant in a fallen world.

Christians, more than ever, need to put on the full armor of God
