Niger State Government on Friday sent all the Almajiri children repatriated to the state to their various local governments to be reunited with their families after they all tested negative to Coronavirus.

Few days ago, the Kaduna State Government deported some Almajiris back to Niger State, where they were quarantined on arrival and their samples sent to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC.)

Out of the samples sent to NCDC, 24 came back negative which included 22 Almajiri children and 2 teachers.

A statement on the facebook page of the State Governor, Sani Bello said they were conveyed in very comfortable buses under the supervision of state officials, who handed them over to the officials of their respective local government areas to be reunited with their families.

According to the statement, the measure was taken in order to ensure that no Almajiri that tested positive for the virus was returned to their communities with the virus, to prevent the spread of the deadly pandemic in Niger State.

The state government said it would continue to take all the necessary measures to prevent the spread of the pandemic.
