The Kano State Hisbah Board has dismissed one of its commandants and is investigating five others for corruption and sabotaging the board’s fight against immorality and social vices.

Commandant General of Hisbah, Sheikh Aminu Daurawa, confirmed the dismissal of the officer on Tuesday, saying that he was caught colluding with “bad elements” to perpetrate immoral acts in the state.

Daurawa said that the dismissed officer, a Deputy Superintendent of Hisbah, is now wanted and will be prosecuted if found.

The Commandant General also explained that the officer used to accept bribes from hotel operators in exchange for not raiding their hotels.

“So, when we carried out the raid operation, the hoteliers where such atrocities were carried out became jittery that Hisbah had changed,” Daurawa said.

“They paid him money not to carry out operations on their hotel. There was one among the hotel operators who asked us what we wanted them to do for us to support us.”

Daurawa said that the board is committed to cleaning up its ranks and ensuring that all of its officers are upholding the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.
