The Kano State Hisbah Board has reportedly arrested 15 teenagers over their alleged involvement in immoral acts in Kano City.
The Public Relations Officer of the board, Mallam Lawal Ibrahim, made this known in a statement reported by NAN on Sunday in Kano.
Ibrahim stated that the suspects were apprehended on Sept. 20, around midnight at a club known in Nassarawa Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
According to him, the Hisbah arrest in Kano was following a tip-off by some people.
“Among the suspects are 10 females, while five are males aged between 18 and 22.”
“Our men went there around 12:38 a.m., and arrested 15 suspects.”
“We found out that all of them are first timers and called their parents and handed them over to them with caution,” he said.
Ibrahim also noted that that most of the suspects were from broken homes and advised parents to ensure proper upbringing of their children to enable them grow up as responsible citizens.
