The Kano state Hisbah Board has arrested 69 young men and women for allegedly engaging in prostitution and other immoral acts in Kano metropolis.
The Director-General of the board, Dr Abba Sufi, told newsmen yesterday in Kano that the suspects were apprehended between Sunday night and early hours of Monday.
He said those arrested included 60 females and nine males, adding that they were apprehended in three houses along Abedi St., in Sabon-Gari area of Kano.
‘’The suspects were arrested in Niyagara, Gidan Coci and Maman Aburi houses, all in Sabon Gari area after a raid by members of the board.
‘’Some of the women were arrested and prosecuted four times even before the recent arrest, while some of them were found drunk and naked during the time of the arrest,’’ he said.
He said the board would continue to raid their hideouts with a view to sanitizing the places.
Sufi also said as soon as investigations were completed, the suspects would be charged to court for proper prosecution. (NAN)
