At a celebration, the Kano State Hisbah Board arrested 78 youngsters for alleged immorality and provocative dressing.
The teenagers, both male and female, were reportedly apprehended during a raid at the ‘White House’ event center in Kano’s Nassarawa GRA area.
Harun Ibn Sina, Director-General of Kano Hisbah Command, informed Daily Trust that the youths had not been arrested for performing same-sex marriages as had been reported.
“When we received the report, we went there and could not establish a fact that they were holding same-sex marriage but we caught them in a highly immoral situation both the males and females,” the Hisbah commander said.
In other news, a video making rounds online has warmed the hearts of many Nigerians and at the same time put many to tears.
This video is about dozens of alumni of the University of Jos who reunited with a former classmate Hilary Minabelem. According to reports, Hilary Minabelem became mentally challenged on the eve of his Master’s degree defence.
His former classmates traveled from Abuja to Rivers State, where they discovered him in Bakana. The coursemates couldn’t contain their delight as they hugged him and joked with him. They then transported him to a psychiatric facility in Rumuigbo, Port Harcourt, for treatment. The alumni chipped up N320,000 to get him admitted to a private facility for treatment.
