On Tuesday, the Jigawa Hisbah Board said it seized no fewer than 1,906 bottles of assorted alcoholic drinks in 2021.
Hisbah commander Ibrahim Dahiru told journalists on Tuesday in Dutse that the drinks were confiscated at different drinking spots and hotels, arresting 92 suspects, including commercial sex workers.
He added that the seized alcohol beverages and the suspects had been given to the police for further action.
“The suspects were apprehended for immoral acts including gambling, prostitution of organising dance party during wedding ceremonies among others,” said Mr Dahiru. “The board was also able to close down brothels across the state within the period under review.”
According to the Hisbah chief, drinking alcohol is unIslamic, urging Kano residents not to engage in immoral acts.
