Young men arrested for Playing Whot Card Game in Kano

The Kano Hisbah Board has arrested a group of Young Men for playing the popular card game “Whot” in the Warawa Local Government Area of the state.

A statement posted on the Hisbah Facebook page on Friday, November 26, said the young men were arrested for wasting their time playing the game instead of engaging on a productive venture.

The board shared some chapters of the Qur’an to the young men and ordered them to recite.

“The Warawa division, under the general command of the Commander-General of Hisbah Dr Muhammad Haroon Ibn Sina, has arrested some youths for wasting their time to play Whot. The divisional office, therefore, shared some chapters of the Holy Qur’an to them to recite for them to utilize their time, “ The statements read.

The Kano State Hisbah Corps is a religious police force in Nigeria’s Kano state responsible for the enforcement of Sharia. The religious Corps was established by the state government in 2003 with the institutionalization of formerly local and privately maintained hisbah security units.

The Hisbah Corps, which operates under the jurisdiction of a Hisbah Board composed of government officials, secular police officers, and religious leaders, is highly decentralized with local units supervised by committees composed of officials and citizens in the communities in which they operate.
