The Bauchi State Hisbah command has seized 260 crates of alcoholic drinks from hotels and night clubs in the state.

According to the permanent commissioner in charge of Hisbah and Sharia, Malam Aminu Balarabe Isah the alcoholic drinks were confiscated to enforce Sharia Islamic code.

Isah made this known on Tuesday, February 2nd while displaying the confiscated drinks at the premises of the state Sharia commission in Bauchi.

He disclosed that 216 crates were confiscated in Misau local government area and 44 in Bauchi club and some beer parlours located in Dass park in Bauchi metropolis.

“We will continue to beam our searchlight to unravel perpetrators of such misdemeanors” . He said.

Isah revealed the department would soon seek for a court order to destroy the items, as the subsisting Sharia law which was implemented in 2003 has unequivocally prohibits sales and consumption of alcoholic drinks.

The Commissioner explained that no fewer than six operators of beer parlors were arrested during the patrol and they would soon be prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.

He appealed to the state government to hasten the appointment of the state Hisbah Board, as well as provide additional financial and logistics support to the department.
