Kano Police Spokesperson, Abdullahi Haruna said the suspects were apprehended by members of Kano State Hisbah Board who transferred the case to the police for thorough investigation and prosecution.

Haruna said:-

“The suspects were arrested for defying the lockdown order by leading Friday congregational prayers in their respective localities.

You must note that the decision for the lockdown was reached in consultation with the religious leaders in the state but these people, most of whom are not Imams, out of defiance, went ahead to organise and lead the prayer.”

The suspects had confessed to violating the lockdown order and will soon be charged to court.
