According to her, the ministry arrested the beggars and almajiris in Kano metropolis with 60 per cent being women, children and men, and 30 per cent almajiris.

“Some of those arrested sleep under bridge while some on the streets.

“Most of the beggars and almajiris are from Kaduna, Bauchi, Borno and Yobe, among others while only few are from Kano.
