  • Police free nearly 150 from school in northern Nigeria
Sharjah24 – Reuters: Police said on Saturday (October 19) they had freed nearly 150 students from a purported school in northern Nigeria that claimed it was teaching the Koran but had instead subjected them to abuse.
It was the fourth such operation in a month and brings the total released from religious schools in northern Nigeria to more than 1,000.

Kaduna state governor Nasir El Rufai ordered the raid on the reform school in Rigasa, officials said. The captives were gathered later at a camp nearby, standing in lines in maroon uniforms as state officials tended to them.
