The Director-General, Kano Hisbah Command, Harun Ibn Sina told Daily Trust that the youths were not arrested for conducting same-sex marriage as being reported.

The suspects were at an event centre called ‘White House’ in the Nassarawa GRA area of Kano.

“When we received the report, we went there and could not establish a fact that they were holding same-sex marriage but we caught them in a highly immoral situation both the males and females,” the Hisbah commander said.

He said the suspects also denied that they were officiating or in attendance of any same-sex marriage but rather celebrating the birthday of their peer.

The Hisbah Commander added that all those arrested are currently under the custody of the command at the time of filing this report.
