Hisbah arrests 20 men, women for bathing together in Kano

2 min read

The Kano State Hisbah Board has arrested 20 men and women for engaging in gender-inclusive bathing in Kano, Daily Trust reports.

Men of Operation Kau Da Badala arrested the perpetrators at a leisure centre located at Ring Road following complaints by residents of the area.

The report quoted the Deputy Commandant General of the board, Dr. Mujahidin Aminuddin Abubakar, as saying, “The offence contravened the Hisbah law as it forbids mingling together of both genders inside the water to bath.”

He expressed concern over the act, which according to him, “could have been replaced with a more beneficial activity that will fetch them rewards from the almighty.”

The Hisbah Board had in March apprehended 11 Muslims for violating the Ramadan fast by eating during the day.

The arrests were made during the annual Ramadan enforcement operations, which included searches of eateries and markets.

The board’s Public Relations Officer, Lawal Ibrahim, who confirmed the arrests, said the arrests were made across the city, particularly near markets.

“The individuals arrested include 10 men and one woman, who was caught eating from her groundnut-selling stall,” he said.
