The distribution of Almajiris to southern states seems to have become a usual phenomenon now but in a questionable manner.
Channels Television reported that operatives of the Ogun state traffic compliance and enforcement agency says it intercepted a truck loaded with about 30 Almajiris at Joju area of Ado-odo/ Ota local government area of the state
The truck with Registration number -Kano XG172 KNG, was said to have been covered with tarpaulin, meant to be carrying only goods.
It was reported that the true nature of what the truck was conveying came to light when operatives forced the driver to park and untie the tarpaulin where it was discovered that the Almajiri were packed with pepper
The truck was said to have been turned back and led to tollgate, the border area between Ogun state and Lagos state from where they said they came into the state.
Only on Monday Patmos Media Line reported that 17 Almajiris were refused entry into Balyesa State.
Even Kaduna State almost buckled under the yoke of the Almajiri saga as 201 of them were sent to Kaduna with 65 of them testing positive to coronavirus disease.
The Kaduna State Government entered into a written agreement with those who were acknowledged indigents and have returned to the Government house boardroom to take a decision on what to do with those not cleared as indigents.
