Islamic Police, Hisbah Seizes Two Vehicles With 5,760
Cartons Of Beer In Kano
The Public Relations Officer of the board, Lawan Ibrahim-
Fagge, disclosed this in Kano on Wednesday.
The Kano State Hisbah Board has seized two vehicles
loaded with 5,760 cartons of assorted beer on Kano/
Madobi road.
The Public Relations Officer of the board, Lawan Ibrahim-
Fagge, disclosed this in Kano on Wednesday.
The statement quoted the Commander-General of the
board, Dr Harun Ibn-Sina, as saying that the perpetrators
were apprehended by Hisbah officials around 4:00 am. on
Wednesday.
“Hisbah board has prohibited the sale of beer in the state
to avoid being intoxicated,” he said.
Ibn-Sina added that the board would continue to sustain
the fight against drugs and other intoxicating substances
among youths in the state.
He commended the efforts of Hisbah corps, volunteers
and stakeholders, for their commitment, adding that the
unwholesome practice had been a source of concern to
the society.
The commander-general said efforts at ridding the society
of the menace of drugs and other intoxicants would be
sustained.
Despite condemnation from Nigerians, the Hisbah group
has continued its push for the Islamic agenda in the
North.
The group is also notorious for destroying truckloads of
alcoholic drinks.
The agency, established to enforce Sharia law in some
states in the region, recently placed a ban on the use of
mannequins.
It also banned stylish haircuts, sagging of trousers and
playing of music at social events by disk jockeys.
A barber and his customers were also arrested recently for
haircuts that were offensive to Islam.
Also, in March 2021, Hisbah operatives arrested two men
suspected of sending pornographic materials to a married
woman.
The suspects were traced and arrested after the woman
complained to the board.
