A former Kaduna lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has warned against deportation of Almajiris to their states of origin.
This is in reaction to Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje on Tuesday approving the deportation of Almajiris to their respective states of origin as part of measures to curb spread of Coronavirus in the State.
Sani while reacting in a post on his Twitter page warned that the deportation of Almajiris to their villages will increase insecurity in the future.
He explained that, the Almajiris without education will return as bandits and insurgents.
Sani wrote: “When you arrest the dirty and beggarly Almajiri from your Beautiful Cities and ‘deport’ him to his village, away from your tourists, your visitors, your leisure and your sights, you are only hiding your dirty undies instead of cleaning them.
“The Almajiri you choose to deport to the villages and refuse to educate and integrate will return to you as Bandits or Insurgents.”
