Ramadan: 20 Arrested For Refusing To Fast In Kano

Not less than 20 Muslims have been arrested by Kano State Hisbah Board for deliberately refusing to fast during the ongoing Ramadan period. Speaking to reporters yesterday, the Acting Commander General of the board, Barrister Labahani Usman, said the arrested persons would be held in detention for three days until they learn how to fast. Usman added that some of the offenders, who included women, had been arrested in various “hot spots” across the metropolis by the plain cloth personnel of the Hisbah command. Personnel of the Hisbah Board have been conducting raids around Kano city aimed at arresting Muslims who intentionally refused to observe fasting since the month of Ramadan commenced almost 20days ago.
