Rano LGA has approved a new law that will bar people of the opposite sex to meet in public at night. Habibu Faragai, the LGA information officer informed newsmen that Dahiru Muhammad, the council chairman, announced the new law on Wednesday at a security committee meeting where residents and traditional leaders were present.
Muhammad said the committee was worried over the high rate of immoral activities among people of opposite genders, including divorcees, in the LGA, adding that the concern guided the council to come up with the new law. He said the law was meant to rid the council area of immoral activities occurring during night discussions between persons of opposite sexes.
The council boss said lovers can now only meet during the day to discuss, and therefore directed the state’s Hisbah board and other security agents at the local level to ensure compliance and arrest defaulters.
Also, Mannir Tafida-Abubakar, Rano LGA district head, called on village, ward heads and imams across the council area to ensure compliance with the new law.
Tafida-Abubakar said there are about three major issues bordering on immorality happening in the area which had become a source of concern to residents. Recall that in 2019,©Standard Gazette, 2021.
