Lawal said the measure was in line with the state government’s efforts to partner with neighbouring states to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

“You know, Gov. Bello Matawalle has established a Committee for Protection, Repatriation and Resettlement of all Almajirai in the state,” she said.

Lawal, who is the Chairperson, Data Collection Sub-committee on Protection, Repatriation and Resettlement Committee, cautioned parents against sending their children for begging in the name of seeking knowledge.

Meanwhile, Alhaji Sulaiman Tunau, the Commissioner of Information and Chairman, Medical and Screening sub-committee, has said that all the 45 Almajirai have tested negative to COVID-19.

Tunau told the News Agency of Nigeria that one of the Almajirai was from Bankura Local Government Area while 44 were from Falale village in Gummi Local Government Area of the state.

“We have handed them over to the Emir of Gummi, Justice Lawal Hassan, to reunite them with their parents,” the commissioner said.
