The Hisbah board in Kano has apprehended 11 Muslims on Tuesday for allegedly breaching the Ramadan fast by eating during daylight hours.

The arrests occurred within the framework of Hisbah’s annual Ramadan enforcement operations, which involved inspections of eateries and markets.

According to Lawal Ibrahim Fagge, the Hisbah spokesperson, the arrests were conducted across the city, particularly in proximity to markets. 

Among those apprehended were ten men and one woman, who was caught eating from her groundnut-selling stall.

Fagge clarified that non-Muslims are exempt from such enforcement activities, but if found selling food during fasting hours to Muslims, they could be considered in violation.

“We apprehended 11 persons on Tuesday, including a lady selling groundnuts who was seen eating from her wares, after some persons alerted us. The other 10 were men and were arrested across the city, especially close to markets where a lot of activities happen,” he said.
