No fewer than 3,000 pupils of Quranic schools, popularly known as `almajiri’ from Katsina State have been returned to their communities by the Kano State Hizbah Board.
The Hizbah Commander General, Sheikh Aminu Daurawa, disclosed this when he paid a courtesy visit to Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State on Wednesday in Katsina.
He said that the state government imposed a ban on street begging by such pupils who were roaming the streets of Kano.
Daurawa said ctivities of the board included organising mass wedding, settlement of disputes, preventing drug abuse and human trafficking, among others.
The commander urged the Katsina Government to establish a Hizbah Board because of its importance.
Responding, Gov. Masari restated the need for Northern state governments to implement the law which banned street begging.
Masari urged international organisations like UNICEF to assist Hizbah in improving the living condition of almajiris.
