Du Merci Children Facing Maltreatment, Coerced to Convert to Islam-NCGF

Du-Merci-KanoThe Nigeria Christian Graduate Fellowship (NCGF) raised an alarm over children being forcefully removed from Du Merci Children Development Ministry to Nasarawa Children’s Home, Kano, alleging that they were being maltreated and coerced to convert to Islam.

The children, some of them university graduates and undergraduates were moved to the state’s orphanage in December last year, following the arrest of the owner of the Home, Prof. Solomon Tarfa, by the police.

In a statement made available to  this magazine, signed by National President, NCGF, Prof. Charles Adeyinka Adisa and Offiong Effiong Bassey Offiong (SAN), who is also board member of the orphanage, said the health and physical psyche of the children were deteriorating, adding that those who were in school were no longer going to school.
