Hisbah Arrests Poor Youths For Playing Whot In Kano
The Kano Hisbah Command has arrested a group of youths playing a popular card game, Whot, in Kano.
The young men were arrested in Warawa town for “wasting their time” playing the card game instead of using their time for a productive venture.
The board therefore shared some chapters of the Qur’an to them 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,” said a terse statement posted on the Hisbah Facebook page. ■
