The Hisbah Board, the Sharia police in Jigawa State, on Monday said it arrested 21 people for allegedly engaging in immoral acts. The board also confiscated 111 bottles of beer.

The Hisbah Commander in the state, Ibrahim Dahiru, who disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria in Dutse, said the suspects were arrested in Kazaure Local Government Area of the state.

Dahiru said that operatives of the command carried out the raid in the early hours of Monday at the popular Gadar Kazaure joint.

He explained that during the raid, 14 suspected commercial sex workers and seven men were arrested.

The commander alleged that the suspects were arrested for engaging in immoral acts.

According to him, the suspects have already been charged to Shari’a Court in Kazaure.

Dahiru further advised residents of the state to desist from engaging in immoral acts and other vices capable of destroying the society.

“The Hisbah will continue to fight against immoral acts, including consumption of alcohol.

“People are also reminded that consumption of beer remains prohibited in all parts of the state,” he warned.
