‘My family believe I became a Christian’ says UK-based PhD holder victim of Islamic rehab centre

‘My family believe I became a Christian’ says UK-based PhD holder detained in Kaduna Islamic centre

A UK-based PhD holder who found himself in one of the Islamic rehabilitation centres in Kaduna State, said his family dumped him in the place thinking he converted to Christianity

Dr Hassan, an Energy Economist, one of those rescued from an Islamic rehabilitation Centre in Kaduna State, explained that he was placed in there because his family believe he “became a Christian”.

According to him, his family put him in the torturous Islamic rehabilitation centre in Kaduna and abandoned him there after he returned to Nigeria to visit them and they noticed he wasn’t raising his kids in the Islamic way.

“They say I became a Christian. Because I spent sixteen years in the UK, I married there. So, I go back to Nigeria to come and settle my family, and the extended family came and told these people (the Islamic rehabilitation centre) that I became a Christian and I was trying to convert my children to Christians. 

“I just found myself here one night – one morning – about two years ago.”

Dr Yusuf revealed that they are chained, starved and tortured in the centre. He added that he’s diabetic and they feed them only carbohydrates. He also said their access to their loved ones was restricted and he lacked access to drugs for his diabetes.  

Yussuf said he managed to survive thanks to the little kids who hang around and bring him something he “soaks and drinks”.

Speaking of his experience in the centre, Yussuf said he hasn’t experienced anything as horrible as life in the centre since he was in military school. He added that life in the rehabilitation centre is worse than life was in military school because he is now older and diabetic.

Another victim, an MSc degree holder, also narrated a similar experience. He, however, said he has no idea why his family put him in the centre.

  20. Famous people you could possibly well recognize, MMA fighters, bowlers, football players and several regular people
    as well. There is nothing better then when you happen to be watch the Kentucky Derby as well
    as the horse you bet on is neck and neck across the final turn. However, before
    you get all enthusiastic about the limits in betting
    being reduced, remember why it was done inside the first place and re-evaluate chances
    in the game with one or both teams having fun with injured players.

  21. It’s in fact very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use the web
    for that reason, and obtain the hottest information.

  22. Most players feel that speeding from the game at lightspeed,
    growing your stack and crushing your competition will be the approach to win. I can tell you personal
    experience this certainly not makes things easier for you.
    If you do play for cash, start low and crush the overall game at this level before moving up – always know when to refer to it quits.

    issues with your website. It appears as if some
    of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and
