A survivor of the Nigerian “torture house” raided by police has described being there as “living in hellfire”.

“If you are praying they will beat you. If you are studying they will beat you,” Isa Ibrahim, 29, told the BBC.

Nearly 500 men and boys were rescued from the building in Kaduna, which was being used as an Islamic school and correctional facility.

The police said it was a place of human slavery, with many detainees found in chains.
