Jigawa State Hisbah Corps has ordered the immediate closure of all beer parlours and prostitution spots during the month of Ramadan.
The state’s Hisbah commandant, Ibrahim Dahiru, stated this on Tuesday in an exclusive interview with Daily Post.
He said the move is part of the corps’ efforts to stem social vices during Ramadan.
Dahiru explained that the Hisbah corps has conducted sensitisation for commercial s3x workers and alcohol sellers.
According to him: “We have gone round to such areas across the state and warned the perpetrators of the offences to quit their illegitimate businesses during [this] the holy month of Ramadan or leave the state.”
While the corps has not received any report of places where such vices are taking place, the Hisbah commandant, however, declared that operatives would embark on general patrol to arrest those who ignored the order.
