Street beggars in Kaduna have threatened to sue the State government for placing a ban of them.

They allege defamation of character and violation of their right to life.

 The group of beggars, consisting of men, women and children have stormed the Kaduna Secretariat of Nigeria Union of Journalists to make their feelings known. Led by Abdullahi Jugunu, the enraged group kicked against the ban on street begging and hawking.

Speaking on behalf of the people, Jugunu maintained that beggars ought to have been consulted before the pronouncement.

“Apart from feeling insulted, we will be seeking legal redress against the government, first for defamation of character,” he said.

“The ban which came only after the Zaria blast is a subtle way of calling us terrorists. Our right to life is now under threat because our existence is hinged on begging activities on the streets.

“We are giving the authorities three days to rescind their decision or risk being victims of a spell we would profess against them. Our promise for now is that we will be returning to the streets for our normal business.”

It will be recalled that Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, banned hawking and begging on the streets of Kaduna after a female suicide bomber hit Zaria, killing no less than 40 teachers.

Lawyers in the house, do these beggars have a case if they sue?

The latest PEW RESEARCH shows that 85% of Muslims worldwide believe suicide bombing are justified,so only Muslims and northerners can solve this problems.
