55 persons, 50 married men and five women have been sentenced to 4 months imprisonment each in Kano State for taking alcohol during the on-going Ramadan fasting.
The board’s Director-General, Alhaji Abba Sufi, told NAN that the convicts were apprehended last week following raids of hideouts in the state. He disclosed that all the 55 persons have been sentenced to four months imprisonment without an option of fine in order to serve as deterrent to others who might contemplate doing same.
“Even if we are not in the month of Ramadan, nobody should take alcohol because the state is implementing Sharia law,” he said.
According to him another 27 have been arrested and will soon be sentenced.
