Islamic teacher chains Almajiri student to prevent escape

The Kaduna State Governor has been told to effect the immediate arrest of an Islamic teacher for chaining an Almajiri.

The Almajiri boy in chains put on him by his Islamic teacher

Alubankudi who brought the ugly incident to the public sphere narrated how Malam Sufi put chains on the young boy's feet and sent him out to the streets to beg for alms after his parents sent him to the teacher to learn the rudiments of the Islam religion.

Instead of teaching the boy, Mallam Sufi rather turned him into a slave and sent out to the streets to beg for food.

Read what she posted on her wall:

"This boy was sent to an Islamic school in Zaria from Ɓoko village in Zamfara State. His teacher put chains on him and sent him to beg for food to eat.

The name of the Mallam is Sufi, at Rimin Tsiwa quarters in Zaria City, Kaduna State. The Islamic School is adjacent Alhaji Sani Rimin Tsiwa house.

It's part of the menace of Almajiri system. Maybe the boy finds it difficult to adapt to the system and wanted to run away, so he was chained when they caught him."

Many people have been condemning the actions of the Islamic teacher while others blame the parents for sending their your son to become an Alamijiri.

Other are, however, putting the blame on the government for not protecting the rights of children and allowing them to be used in such a callous manner, calling on El-Rufai to promulgate a law that would protect the rights of children in his state.
