Officials of the Kano State Hisbah Board have warned students of Bayero University, Kano staying in off-campus hostels against immoral acts.
The Islamic police outfit stated this after invading Danbare, a small community directly opposite the university’s gate in Kano, arresting students of the opposite sex who were found cohabiting in the same room.
It was learnt that the men broke into the students’ rooms and dragged them to their office, sparking tension in the neighbourhood as other students kept vigil all through the night out of fear of the unknown.
The Islamic police also warned any male and female students found together henceforth in a room will be fined N20,000 each, a student confirmed to newsmen.
“They told us any guy and girl found together in a room will henceforth be fined N20, 000 each. Warning us to stay away from all immoral acts,” a student said.
The agency established to enforce Sharia law in some states in the region recently banned stylish haircuts, sagging of trousers, playing of music at social events by disk jockeys and tricycle riders from adorning their vehicles with pictures considered to be obscene and against the tenents of Islam.
