The Kano State Hisbah Board has dismissed one of its commandants for comprising and sabotaging the fight against immorality and social vices in the state.
Sheikh Aminu Daurawa, the Commandant General of Hisbah, confirmed this to newsmen on Tuesday in Kano, saying that five other officers were also under investigation.
According to him, “The dismissed personnel usually connived with bad elements to perpetrate unholy acts in the state.”
Daurawa added that he has also dismissed a Deputy Superintendent of Hisbah (DSH) and declared him wanted, saying that wherever he is found, he should be arrested and prosecuted.
He said the dismissed Deputy Superintendent usually connived with the hotel operators so that their facilities would not be raided by Hisbah in the course of its operations.
He also dismissed speculation by a Facebook user alleging that its personnel cut the hair of a non-indigene with bottle after it raided a brothel in the state.
He described the allegation as the handiwork of mischiefmakers, saying Hisbah had identified the culprit that posted the video and that the suspect would be invited to prove his claim.
