Governor Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) has ordered the crack down on a reported illegal “Correctional center” which was effected this afternoon in Gusau.
Governor Matawalle earlier got a wind of a secret existence of this center and immediately ordered his Commissioner for Special Duties Alhaji Mohammed Saddiq Maiturare to lead a team of Security operatives to the reported Center.
On arrival, no fewer than 54 male and female inmates were found in the squalid House which serves as the Center operated by one Malam Iliyasu Abdullahi Gamagiwa. The inmates were found chained and maltreated.
The security operatives immediately released the inmates and took them to the state remand home and were fed before next line of action to rehabilitate and reunite them with their families.
Malam Gamagiwa told reporters at the venue that his center has existed in Gusau the state capital for many years and that all the inmates were taken to him by their respective families
“they are all delinquents, truants and wayward people I have here. Some of them are thieves, some of them take drugs and some of them even beat their parents”, Malam Gamagiwa said. “ours is to correct them” he added.
Governor Bello Mohammed has since directed for the closure of the center and prosecution of its operators.
