Never reproach another for his love:
It happens often enough
That beauty ensnares with desire the wise
While the foolish remain unmoved.

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.
