One of the children rescued by police, with bruises on his back, eats at the Hajj transit camp in Kaduna, Nigeria September 28, 2019. Some parents paid fees, believing it was an Islamic school. Some described it as a good institution and dismissed talk of abuse. Others saw it as a correctional facility. Police and regional officials said it was not registered as either.
