Destruction of hundreds of thousands of bottles of alcohol has been described among the numerous successes recorded by Kano State Hisbah Board under the leadership of its new Commander General, Sheikh Haroun Muhammad Sani Ibn Sina since he assumed office four months ago.

“We destroyed hundreds of thousands of bottles of alcohol when the deputy governor, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna led the destruction exercise some days ago.

“The raids by the board will be extended to Kwanar Gafan vegetable market to fish out bad eggs among the society,” the Commander General has said.

In a chat with The Triumph in his office recently, the Commander General also gave dissolution of leadership of the command at the 44 local government areas of the state as another milestone within the period under review.

He said the action followed a burning desire to reform the offices of the command at the local council levels.

According to him, the action has since been yielding positive results as it made the personnel of the board to now be more united and formidable.

He said he met the command ineffective, a gesture which, he added, necessitated him to effect some changes in order to make it more effective in line with the desire of the Ganduje administration to see that right things are being done in the society.

Sheikh Ibn Sina further said after effecting the changes, he led the command for some raids to some places where unwanted acts were being committed.

He said at Badume market, 93 persons were arrested in connection with prostitution during the first raid, adding that another 48 were arrested during the second, stating further that some of those raided were found to be HIV/AIDS carriers.

He advised people in the state to assist the Ganduje administration toward bringing sanity in the society, especially in the area of reforming youths to be productive.
