It was said situation degenerated during which six of the children ran out the premises.
The source said policemen later came to restore normalcy, after which they stopped the church service at an ECWA church which was not far from the orphanage.
They were, however, not found in the church.
When our Correspondent arrived at the home, he met some Senior police officers, as well as the Commissioner for Women Affairs, Zawuru Mohammed; and other stakeholders.
Mohammed explained that the children were prevented from leaving the premises for church service because their movement was restricted, adding that only the court could grant them permission to attend church service.
“There was no truth in the allegation that operators of the home are making moves to convert them from Christianity to Islam. Every child has a right to choose their faith,” she said.
However, the Coordinator of Du-Merci Orphanage, Sabon Gari, Mrs Mercy Tarfa, lamented that since the children were transferred from DU-Merci Orphanage to Kano on December 25, 2019, the children had remained in solitary confinement and not allowed to go to school or church.
As of the time of filing this report, the search for the six children was still on.
