Nigerian activist and journalist Gimba Kakanda has expressed his disapproval over the recent ban on the use of mannequins by the Kano Hisbah in the state.

The Islamic police had announced the ban on the use of mannequins by tailors, boutique owners, and supermarkets in Kano State on Thursday, an act that has received condemnation from the Niger State-born writer.

Kakanda said, "They need vigorous therapy sessions to fight their perversion or even a rehab to restore their sanity. There are much more effective ways to treat a mentally ill people. Bunch of weirdos masquerading as fundamentalists.

"Kano State Hisbah Board has succeeded more in subjecting Islam to ridicule than it has in projecting its virtues. It’s rather embarrassing that an agency set up to promote Islam is obsessed with the trivial and the ridiculous in a country wrecked by poorly indoctrinated Muslims who have waged war against the society and the nation.

"An agency that ought to be more interested in developing policies and programmes to protect impressionable Muslim youths from violent extremism has chosen a path that inspires extremist tendency, banning the use of mannequins at fashion houses and punishing a Muslim boy who stopped praying after being humiliated by the Hisbah corps for rocking unconventional haircut.

"Some days ago, a Muslim cleric rattled Kano when he questioned the existence of an all-Christian settlement in Kano. This is the reason we need a legislation against unlicensed public preaching to prevent us from the danger of divisive charlatans who threaten our diversity."
