The Kano State Hisbah board officials have prohibited the use of mannequins to display clothes by boutique owners, tailors, supermarkets within the state from henceforth.
Sheikh Aroun Ibn Sina, the Commander of the state Hisbah Board, who made the announcement in the state today June 30, added that the ban on the use of mannequins by tailors, boutique owners, and others as mannequins are the cause of immoral thoughts among some people.
“Hisbah prohibits the use of mannequins at shops, commercial and private residences and other public places. This violates Islamic provisions, it is also responsible for immoral thoughts among some members of the public, all these are against Islam.
We have divided Kano into five areas for the monitoring and implementation of the ban across the state.”
Sheikh Sina also disclosed that the agency would start a campaign to teach people why Islamic religion goes against the use of the mannequins, while officials will be sent to enforce the ban to apprehend and prosecute those who go against the ban.
