“Total discharged now 22, while 5 deaths were recorded,” the tweet added.

This came after the Anambra State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Thursday called on the Kano State Government to stop distributing Almajiris to other parts of the country.

The Anambra CAN also alleged that Almajiri’s from Kano State were being shipped down to other parts of the country, questioning the rationale behind allowing trailer loads of travelers to leave the state borders in obvious disregard to the ban on interstate travels in the country.

In a statement signed by its Chairman, Rev Ndubuisi John, CAN wondered the reason behind such act, putting into consideration the health and security implications of such.
