771. Unnamed boarding school in Kadunda, Nigeria
The authorities raided an unlicensed boarding school in Kadunda where the students were kept in chains and exposed to abuse, including sexual abuse. The actions of the employees were defended as acts committed in accordance with their religious belief. Despite that charges have been raised against both employees and the owners.
Such unlicensed school exist all over Africa but it is rare that the authorities intervene because it is considered a good thing that youth attend some kind of schooling instead of hanging out in the streets.
However, it cannot be fun to be at such a boarding school as a student.
