The evacuation exercise, which commenced from such notable areas of the metropolis like the Tipper Garage, Tanke to Offa Garage, took the commissioner’s entourage to Geri Alimi and the popular Challenge area where the street beggars were domicile.
Mrs Afolashade, who said that the leadership of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq-led government prohibited street begging, added that it is, therefore, prohibited for street beggars to stay in the areas.
