Drama As Kano Hisbah Dismisses Officer For Supporting Immorality

The Kano State Hisbah Board has removed one of its commandants from duty due to allegations of compromising and undermining efforts to combat immorality and social vices within the state.

The Commandant General of Hisbah, Sheikh Aminu Daurawa, confirmed this to newsmen on Tuesday in Kano.Daurawa said five other officers were also under investigation.

He explained that the dismissed personnel usually connived with “bad elements to perpetrate unholy acts in the state”.

Daurawa said upon assumption of office, he hit the ground running by sanitising the board of bad eggs as the board is no longer the same as it used to be.

“We have dismissed a Deputy Superintendent of Hisbah (DSH) and declared him wanted. Wherever he is found he should be arrested and prosecuted,” said the commandant- general.

He usually connived with the hotel operators so that their hotels would not be raided by Hisbah in the course of its operations.

Meanwhile, the board has dismissed speculation by a Facebook user alleging that its personnel barbed the hair of a non-indigene with bottle after it raided a brothel in the state.

Daurawa described the allegation as handiwork of mischief makers, saying Hisbah had identified the culprit that posted the video and that the suspect will be invited to prove his claim.
