Hisbah Police Nabs Eight Cross Dressers In Kano




The Kano Hisbah Board on Tuesday nabbed eight suspected cross dressers during a wedding in Kofar Waika in Gwale Local Government Area of the state.

The Deputy Commander General of the Board, Mujaheed Aminudeen-Abubakar, in a statement issued to newsmen, said the suspects were arrested after a good Samaritan disclosed how young men dressed in female Fulani attire attended and were dancing at a wedding.

He said, “Our officials, on receiving the information, went to the venue of the wedding ceremony and apprehended eight young men, including the groom, dressed in full female Fulani attire, dancing to music in their regalia.” 

Aminudeen-Abubakar, in the released statement noted that they confessed to the crime when arraigned before Hisbah Shari’a Court in Kano.


The Presiding judge, Khadi Tanimu-Sani, ordered that each of them be given 10 lashes of cane, pay N20,000 and produce one surety each or be remanded in correctional centre for three months.

The board, which was established in the year 2000, is saddled with the responsibilities of enjoining what is right and forbidden in Islamic ways and manners.
