Cross River, Bayelsa return almajirai to home states

Tue May 12th, 2020 - Benue

Cross River State Governor Benedict Ayade has sent another set of 120 almajirai, who were trying to enter the state, back to their home states.

Security men at the Gakem-Benue border intercepted the almajirai and other passengers, who were loaded in two trucks.

Most of the passengers, who were Northerners of various ages, including women and children, attempted to enter Cross River through the Gakem/Benue border on Sunday when the team of security men led by the Commissioner for Youth Development and Skills Acquisition, Omang Idiege, ordered them back to where they were coming from.
