Kano State Council Enact New Law Which Bans Ladies From Meeting Their Lovers Public Places At Night

The Kano council in the Rano Local Government Area of the State has enacted a new law that may affect the love life of the citizens of the place. 

The bye-law enacted was as a result of the increased reports of immoral activities between young boys and girls, including divorce people. 

The new law banned lovers from meeting each other at open or public places at night. The law implies that lovers can only meet in the daytime.

Muhammad who announced the law said that the law is to cleanse and reduce immorality in the area that usually occurs in the night between lovers. The council called on Hisbah, the Islamic police, and other security agents to make sure that people obey the new law.
