July 15, 2014 – 55 Muslims Arrested & Jailed For Drinking Alcohol During Ramadan Fast In Kano

400 Beggars Arrested By Sharia Police In Kano For Violating Anti Begging Law

Kano religious police, Hisba has arrested 55 people over alcohol consumption during Ramadan fasting in Kano.

Four hundred beggars have also been arrested by the state’s Sharia police for violating the anti-begging law.

The Hisba Board’s Director-General, Alhaji Abba Sufi, told NAN that the convicts were apprehended last week following raids on their hideouts in Kano.

“All the 55 persons were sentenced to four months imprisonment without option of fine in order to serve as deterrent to others who might contemplate doing same.

“From those arrested, 50 of them were married men while the remaining five were women.

“Even if we are not in the month of Ramadan, nobody should take alcohol because the state is implementing Sharia law,” Sufi said.

According to him, the board has also arrested another 27 people for the same offence and they will soon be taken to the court.

He said the board would continue to raid the hideouts with a view to arresting them for prosecution.

On street begging, Sufi said the board had arrested over 400 beggars for violating the anti-begging law.

“We arrest beggars on daily basis but we release first offenders after warning.”

Sufi warned that any person caught in the business of begging would be arrested and charged to court, while beggars from other states would be repatriated.

    What kind of nonsense is this, if muslim are fasting why arresting some just bcoz they are drinking away their sorrow, abeg free those guys jare b/4 I come to put bomb in that station, can’t guys enjoy their life b/4 they die, how on earth will you arrest them, must everybody do the fasting, how much have they be awarding since they hv been fasting all this while, this is why I like christianity, you can even drink in church or even toast girls in church nobody will talk to you, haba! what a rigid and cumbersome religion is this

    @ Bezo. yes u are right that you can drink, toast girls in Church anything in church even have ***** in church, no one will hold you for that since your religion permit all that.no rule & regulations. continue doing what you all like since you are in a freedom religion that permit you to do all sort of things in as much as that is what you like.

    Buzo or Bezo, you better be cautious of what you say before God will severely deal with you. Which Christianity permit you to drink in Church and even toast girls? I believe you must be out of your senses before the uncouth alteration that comes out of your mouth. I hardly comment here but your contribution to this post make me did. Be warned!
