The Kano State Hisbah Command has sacked Sani Nasidi Uba Rimo, one of its commanders who was allegedly caught with a married woman at a hotel in Kano.
Lawal Fagge, Public Relations Officer of the board, confirmed this on Tuesday, according to Daily Trust.
He said the committee which investigated the adultery allegation against Rimo found him guilty.
Rimo, who led the campaign against prostitutes in Kano, was said to have been caught with a married woman at a hotel room in Sabon Gari area of Kano in February.
It was stated that when he was asked to identify the woman, he reportedly said she was his niece, alleging that he kept her in a hotel room because she was having issues with her husband.
Ustaz Harun Muhammad Ibn Sina, the Commander General of the Hisbah Board, later set up a committee to investigate the matter.
“We have set up a 5 -man committee to conduct a through investigation about the issue. And if he is found guilty, the board would definitely deal with him accordingly,” Sina had said.
