The wives of some Shiite members numbering about 15 to 20 are still locked up in Kano Central Prison with their children, a source told NEWISSUES. They were arrested during the Shiite Procession in which mobs attacked and killed some of them.
The source confirmed to NEWISSUES that the women and children were being maltreated by prisoners and prison guards. “The children had diarrhea and it was a pathetic sight.”
The women were being asked to bring one hundred thousand naira and their village head before they are granted bail.
The Kano State government cannot be reach for statement.
