“We (Hisbah) have confirmed that Shatu Garko is a muslim from Kano state and her parents come from Garko Local government area. Kano is a sharia state and this is why we would not allow the matter to pass.

“We will invite the parents to talk to them about the actions of their daughter and the fact that what she did is illegal in Islam in case they don’t know so that she would not continue in that path and also stop other girls from copying her,” the Hisbah boss, Sheik Ibn Sina, told BBC News Pidgin.

  1. You are all mad. Tell me is your Governor’s daughter not worse than her. Why did you not arrest her when she was drinking, smoking and using her drugs. How can hold her parents responsible for what she did. I am a Muslim but I can’t understand all these animals. Lack of education, civilization is really affecting most people from North.
