The Hisbah Board has laid waste to a total of 1, 975, 000 bottles of alcohol in Kano in compliance with the tenets of Islam.
Islam teaches that alcohol and any other thing that can numb the mind and keep people from having a sane mind should be avoided. In this case, destroyed.
The destruction was witnessed by the Deputy Governor, Nasiru Gawuna, who stood in for the Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
Hisbah is a Sharia law enforcement agency, present in Sharia States like Kano.
In his remarks, the Commander General, Kano State Hisbah Board, Sheikh Harun Muhammad Ibn Sina said that the board got a court order to destroy over 20 trucks of alcohol.
Sina expressed his gratitude for the support the Kano State Government gives the Hisbah Board and vowed to continue ridding the State of immoral behaviour that could jeopardize the serenity of the society.
