As part of its effort at discouraging what it has described as ‘immoral gatherings’ and related offences to curtail social vices in the Northern state, the Kano State Hisbah Board has announced the destruction of 25 trucks of beer and arrests of 2,260 suspected criminals between January and December 2022.

ConsumerConnect reports Dr. Harun Sani-Ibn, Commander General of the Board, disclosed this development to reporters at the Hisbah Board Headquarters Thursday, December 29, 2022, in Kano.

Sani-Ibn said the trucks contained thousands of bottles of assorted beer during the operations across the state.

The Commander General of the Hisbah Board stated: “Most of those arrested for criminal offence were handed over to security agencies for necessary action; the under-aged were reunited with their families.

“In the year under review, in order to reduce street begging within the metropolis, about 1,269 beggars were evacuated within one month, 386 were repatriated to their states.”

He also noted: “Kano State Hisbah Board has also succeeded in dispersing 86 immoral gatherings and other similar offences to curtail social vices across the state.”

Ibn-Sina further said about 822 disputes were resolved amicably, while some were still ongoing in various law courts due to their complex nature.

Fifteen couples were married at Hisbah, while 22 persons converted to Islam during Da’awah in various parts of the state, said he.

According to Ibn-Sina, the Kano State Government recruited 5,700 Hisbah Marshalls and 3,100 Hisbah Corps, and renovated buildings in Hisbah Headquarters and its local government offices in the state.

He disclosed that a new Shari’a court had been established at the Board Headquarters, while Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano, has approved the elevation of Hisbah Mosque to a Juma’at Mosque.

Ibn-Sina, therefore, urged parents and guardians to be vigilant and report any suspected persons to relevant authorities in Kano State.
