The Kano State Hisbah Board arrested 226 beggars for allegedly violating the law banning street begging along the major streets of the state capital in November, an official said on Wednesday.

The officer in charge of the Anti-begging Unit of the board, Malam Musa Sangaya, in Kano said that 119 of the 226 beggars were children, while 107 were adult.He said, “Our men arrested 226 street beggars around Bata, Naibawa, Nassarawa hospital and Yankaba areas for violating the law banning street begging in Kano metropolis.

“Out of the 226 beggars, 107 are adult (both male and female), while 119 are children who engaged in begging in places like traffic junctions and restaurants.”

He stated that 98 of the arrested beggars hail from Kano city, while eight are from Bichi, Rano and Gezawa local government areas of the state.

According to him, the remaining 120 are from neighbouring Cameroon and Niger, among others.

Sangaya said six of them had been taken to court, while others who were first offenders, were taken to their various local government areas.
