"On interrogation, they were said be coming from Funtua in Katsina State."

He said the state Commissioner of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, ordered the return of the youths to Katsina.

He said, "On the instructions of the CP, the lorry and the 200 Almajirai were escorted by fully armed policemen to the border of Niger and Kwara State from where they will return to Katsina State they claimed they came from."
