On 3 March 2022 Professor Richard Solomon Tarfa – who founded the Du Merci orphanages in Kano and Kaduna States in Nigeria, with his wife, Mercy – was sentenced to two years on a false charge of forgery.
Worse still, the children of the Du Merci orphanage, which he founded with his wife Mercy, are being targeted.
Sixteen of the children – the youngest just four years old – have been in state custody for over two years. In that time, they’ve been beaten, underfed, and one child is in hospital with first degree burns after a fire broke out in the government-run home.
Send an email to the Nigerian High Commissioner: urge the Nigerian government to ensure the safety and speedy return of the Du Merci children.
