A senior official with Kano Hisbah board has been arrested by operatives of the state police command after he was allegedly caught with a married woman in a hotel.

According to Freedom Radio Kano, the official was arrested in Sabon Gari area of the city. His name was not immediately mentioned, but he was described only as police chief when the matter featured on Freedom FM’s popular magazine programme “Inda Ranka”.

The arrested commander is said to be in charge of arresting beggars and prostitutes in Kano metro area.

He was taken into custody after the husband of the woman with whom he allegedly had affairs filed complaints.

The station reported that Kano Hisbah Commander Muhammed Haruna, described the incident as unfortunate, and disclosed that a two-man committee has been established to investigate the matter, Freedom Radio said.

Hisbah officers regularly arrest unmarried people caught in the hotel, presumably for sexual activities, as part of their enforcement of the Sharia.
