11 minors have been arrested by Hisbah operatives at a leisure park in Birnin Kebbi the Capital of Kebbi state.
Hisbah Director, Muhammad Sulyman, said the minors include both males and females, ages 14 to 15 years who were caught engaging in different anti-social behaviour allegedly inimical to their well-being and which is also abhorred in Islamic religion.
Sulyman said the minors have confessed to the offences they have committed. He added that Hisbah operatives counselled them on the dangers of what they were caught doing before releasing them to their parents with a strong warning not to indulge in such immoral acts which are capable of eroding their home training.
He also warned that Kebbi Hisbah operatives will leave no stone unturned in nipping in the bud minors and even adults who engage in unwholesome attitudes of alcoholism or prostitution.
“Anti-social behaviour has no place in our society and we will not fold our arms to allow youth to be lost to the immorality of either drinking or prostitution.”
