The Commandant, Kano State Hisbah Board, Dr Haruna Ibn-Sina, said 19 women had been arrested over alleged involvement in immoral acts in the Kano metropolis.

The commandant confirmed the arrest in a statement signed by Malam Lawal Ibrahim, Public Relations Officer of the board in Kano on Wednesday.

He said that the suspects were apprehended on Jan. 19, at about 9:00 p.m in Nassarawa Park and Green Restaurant while engaging in taking intoxicants along Ahmadu Bello Way.

He said the arrest was based on directives given by the state government on a fresh ban on the activities of viewing and event centres across the state due to the spread of COVID-19 cases.

“All the 19 suspects are female and aged above 20 years.

“18 of the suspects are first-timers offenders, while the remaining one had once been arrested,” he said.

He advised parents to stop buying big phones for their wards, but train them to be responsible.

According to the statement, those that were first offenders have been handed over to their families with warnings, while the remaining one will be thoroughly advised.
