“We are not seeing them as almajiri, we see them as suspected trained jihadists, I have lived in the North, you cannot tell me somebody who is 34 years is an almajiri, I know almajiri to be from age of four to 17, moreover, why are they bringing them here if they are rejected in their own place,” Nkeoma said.
