Lagos State Government Orders Beggars To Vacate The State Within 3 Months

Lagos State Commissioner for Youth and Social Development Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf has said that the Lagos State government will take drastic action against beggars if they do not vacate the state within the next three months.
We have been campaigning against street begging on radio since January. The campaign will run for three months following which the state government will take more drastic actions against perpetrators because there is anti-begging law in the state.

What we are also saying is that people should stop giving alms to beggars on the streets because many of them are not beggars in the real sense of it. Many street beggars have been discovered to engage in criminal activities and hard drugs
