Almajiri menace: Arrest father, not son ― Sanusi
The Emir of Kano, Mohammed Sanusi, has called for enactment of laws by state governments to tackle injustices in marriages just as he recommended the arrest of any parent that sends out his child as an Almajiri to beg for alms.
Sparking at a national conference for repositioning the Muslim family for national development attended by President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja on Thursday, he said no law provides that a man should marry, have children and abandon his responsibility to them.
He said any man that was too poor to take care of his family should go out and beg himself and not send his child.
The traditional ruler called for the arrest of any parent that turned his child or ward to an Almajiri rather than arresting the boy.
More to come.
