Islamic cleric chains 9-yr-old 'Almajiri' so he won't escape

A case of child abuse has been discovered where a child beggar is chained with iron shackles to prevent him from running away.

This is serious child abuse

According to Henry Moses who posted the saddening picture on his Instgram page, the young boy who is sent to beg and scavenge for food by the teacher, went about with the chains on his legs.

Moses who is a student of the prestigious Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State, said he saw the poor boy roaming the streets of the town in the shackles and when he was asked who did it to him, the boy claimed that his Islamic teacher chained him so that he would not run away.

Is this not the worst form of child abuse?
