    Sharia hisbah police arrest 22 beggars in Kano



     
    It was a bad day for 22 beggars in Kano, northern Nigeria as the sharia hisbah police officers arrested them for allegedly violating the anti-begging law in the state.

    Malam Mohammed Yusuf, public relations officer, Kano state hisbah said that out of the 22 beggars arrested, 11 of them were females, while the remaining 11 were children.
    According to him, the beggars were arrested while begging for money around hotels and brothels located along Katsina road, in Kano; saying that the board has screened those arrested and released the first timers among them on bail.

    He further added that “all those found to be habitual beggars were referred to the board’s legal department for further legal action. The spokesman also said that the board had received 277 different cases out of which over 150 were on marital matters”.
