69 arrested over immoral acts in Kano

25 March 2014, 06:49

Abuja - The Kano State Hisba Board has arrested 69 young men and women for allegedly engaging in prostitution and other immoral acts in Kano metropolis.

The Director-General of the board, Dr Abba Sufi, told newsmen in Kano on Monday that the suspects were apprehended between Sunday night and early hours of Monday.

He said those arrested included 60 females and nine males, adding that they were apprehended   in three houses along Abedi St.in Sabon Gari area of Kano.

"The suspects were arrested in Niyagara, Gidan Coci and Maman Aburi houses, all in Sabon Gari area after a raid by members of the board.

"Some of the women were arrested and prosecuted four times even before the recent arrest, while some of them were found drunk and naked during the time of the arrest," he said.

He said the board would continue to raid their hideouts with a view to sanitizing the places.

Sufi also said as soon as investigations were completed, the suspects would be charged to court for proper prosecution.

On beggars, the director general said the board had so far repatriated about 300 beggars to their respective states since the commencement of the exercise last week.

‘’We have so far returned about 300 beggars to their states of origin since we started the exercise last week and it will continue until  the situation improves,’’ he added.
