According to Sahara Reporters, a resident of the community raised the alarm over the increasing repressive activities of the religious police in the region.

According to him, Hisbah had been ‘frustrating the lives of youths in Kuriga and often carry out severe punishment for moral failings’.

“Hisbah is punishing youths for keeping afro hair and sometimes it is accompanied with beating.

“They have also prevented women and girls from using smartphones, claiming that it is used to spread unIslamic behaviors. They are just terrorising us,”

Another resident of the community also alleged that Hisbah personnel have prohibited women and girls from using sunglasses.

“They also sometimes storm houses where ceremonies are taking place and punish playing of music, dancing and any form of entertainment”.

The publication also recalled that Hisbah recently made headlines for shaving off the hair of young men on stylish haircuts and afros in Kano, arresting people for improper dressing and seizing tricycles from rides who decorated them with pictures considered to be obscene or against the tenets of Islam.
