Couples in Rano Local Government Area of Kano State have been banned from meeting in public places at night.
The LGA enacted the bye-law as a result of the reported cases of immoral activities between males and females, including divorcees.
Rano local government information officer, Habibu Faragai, said the council chairman, Dahiru Muhammad, announced the law at a security committee meeting attended by residents and traditional leaders.
Muhammad said the committee had raised alarm over the high rate of immorality in the LGA, adding that the concern guided the council to come up with the new law.
He said the law was meant to sanitise the council area of immoral activities occurring during night discussions between the opposite s*x.
The council boss directed the state’s Hisbah board and other security agents at the local level to ensure compliance and arrest defaulters.
