The Kano State Hisbah Board said it detained 2,260 people for committing various crimes from January to December 2022.
Similarly, a total of 1,269 beggars were removed from the streets of eight Kano local government areas, of whom 386 were repatriated to their respective home states.
The junta’s Commanding General, Sheikh Harun Ibn Sina, made the revelation while speaking to reporters on Thursday.
According to him, most of those detained for criminal activities were handed over to security agencies for the necessary proceedings, while minors were reunited with their families.
The commanding general explained that in the area of reducing social vices, the junta dispersed 86 immoral gatherings, such as same-sex marriages, drug parties and other similar crimes, throughout the state.
Ibn Sina explained that 822 disputes were settled amicably, while some remained pending in multiple courts due to their complex nature.
He noted that 25 beer trailers containing thousands of bottles were destroyed in 2022, adding that additional bottles of stocked beer would be disposed of by January 2023.
