The Sokoto State House of Assembly has approved a bill to establish a Hisbah commission in the state.
The move follows the approval of the report of the House Committee on Religious Affairs and Human Rights Aid during its session on Thursday.
NAN quoted Hon Abubakar Yabo, chairman of the committee, as saying that they had to seek advice from stakeholders before reaching a decision.
The bill was approved by a majority of lawmakers after casting their ballots.
The Hisbah Corps, which operates under the jurisdiction of a Hisbah Board composed of government officials, secular police officers, and religious leaders, is highly decentralized with local units supervised by committees composed of officials and citizens in the communities in which they operate.
Northern states such as Kano, Jigawa, and Zamfara have Hisbah institutions, which ensure the observance of Sharia law.
Earlier this week, Naija News reported that operatives of the Kano State Police Command caught a Hisbah police official Sani Rimo with a married woman in Downtown Hotel in Sabon Gari area of Kano metropolis on Monday night.

LAUTECH ‘Lecturer’s’ Sex Tape Leaks
Ladoke Akintola University, LAUTECH, is back in the news due to a controversial development, with the sex tape of a ‘lecturer’ of the institution leaked on Twitter.
Recall that a student of the school was spotted in series of leaked sex footage a few weeks ago.
The institution while reacting to the development denied her being a student of the institution and condemned how the public had spoilt the name of the school.
“We don’t have anything to do with the lady you mentioned. There are many of them who did not even complete secondary school education but would go on social media to claim they are LAUTECH students,” the varsity had stated.
“We don’t know her. LAUTECH is a school for serious-minded students and staff and not her type.”
However, on Thursday, another footage was spotted on Twitter with a lot of users claiming that the lecturer works for LAUTECH.
A middle-aged man in a video was filmed by a third party having his way with a lady whose face was shielded.
Meanwhile, the varsity is yet to react as of the time of this report.

The development was confirmed in a video clip shared on Twitter by a music minister of the OFM whose name is identified as Prince Ehi Nicholas.
Naija News understands that Apostle Suleman while preaching in his Church, asked his congregants who have graduated from school and yet have no jobs to step out. Showing pity for their situations, the clergy said he will pray for them and give them some money to better their lives.
Giving out envelopes of money to the applicants, Suleman said Nigeria do not have a government but politicians who only care about themselves, adding that people will wait forever if the Nigerian government is their only hope for a job.
Speaking about numbers of people being supported monthly by the Church, Suleman said members of the Church can attest that the money spent on people does not come from the Church offering and tithes, he noted that God is the source of their income.
