Eid-el-Fitr: Jigawa Hisbah board deploys 1,223 operatives, warns against immoral activities

The Hisbah Board in Jigawa State has deployed no fewer than 1,223 of its operatives for the forthcoming Eid-el-fitr celebration in the state.

The Hisban Commander in the state, Malam Ibrahim Dahiru, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse on Sunday.

Dahiru said the operatives would synergise with other security agencies in the state to provide adequate security during the festive period.

He explained that the operatives were also expected to assist in crowd and traffic control during the period.

The commander added that the personnel had been advised to act professionally in the discharge of their duties.

“Also, residents are advised to be law abiding and behave in orderly manner so as to ensure peaceful and hitch-free celebration.

“We’re using this opportunity to warn residents that our men will go after anyone that engages in immoral activities and other social vices such as Dj dance, Gala, as well as sale and use of fireworks, popularly known as ‘knock out’,” the commander warned.

Dahiru, therefore, advised parents and guardians to monitor the movements of their wards during the festivity so they won’t be involved in acts capable of disturbing public peace.
