All bars and places where people can get prostituted during Ramadan have been ordered to close immediately by the Jigawa State Hisbah Corps.
Ibrahim Dahiru, the state’s Hisbah commandant, said this in an interview on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, adding that the action is a part of the corps’ attempts to reduce social vices during Ramadan.
“We have visited these locations across the state and issued warnings to those responsible for the crimes, advising them to stop operating their illegal businesses during this holy month of Ramadan or to leave the country. “.
In response to those who disobeyed the order, the Hisbah commandant declared that agents would go on a general patrol and arrest them.
The Hisbah corps has conducted sensitization programs for alcohol sellers and commercial sex workers, according to Dahiru.
