The Public Relations Officer of the board, Malam Mohammed Yola, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano.
He said the affected beggars were brought to Kano from Lagos state in December, 2014.
“The Kano State Government then directed the board to return some of them to their respective states of origin”, Yola said.
He said 29 of them were from some local government areas in Kano state while the remaining 52 were from other states in the North.
Yola further said that 13 of those affected came from Jigawa, 12 from Katsina, three from Niger and four each from Zamfara and Kebbi.
Others, he said, included seven from Kaduna, two from Borno, six from Niger Republic and one from Ghana. (NAN)
