Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, has placed a ban on Almajiri system in the state.
Mohammed in a statewide broadcast said the old Almajiri system was no longer tenable and healthy in the midst of the dreaded Coronavirus in the state.
The governor, who said Kaduna and Kano states were in the process of evacuating Almajiris of Bauchi extraction, added that the state government had prepared the NYSC Camp in the state to keep them pending when they will be reunited with their families.
Bala said Almajiris from other states, who reside in Bauchi State would also be repatriated to their states.
The governor has also placed a ban on okada riders whom he said had infiltrated Bauchi from neighboring states.
