A non-governmental organisation, Women Empowerment Initiative and Sustainable Equality (WISE), accused of promoting LGBTQ activities in Kano State, has been carrying out its initiatives under the guise of women empowerment programmes to deceive the government and the public, Daily Trust has gathered.

Our source, who requested anonymity, confirmed that the organisation once paid a courtesy call to the Hisbah Board with the aim of fostering a partnership to empower vulnerable women in society.

The source revealed that the NGO even donated food items during the last Ramadan fast.

“This NGO visited the Hisbah office during the Ramadan period and distributed food items to vulnerable women. This is not the only organisation that Hisbah is looking into in order to investigate and screen their activities,” the source said.

The NGO, WISE, reportedly left Kano after the state government ordered Hisbah to clamp down on their activities. Efforts by Daily Trust reporters to locate the NGO’s office, listed as No. 239 Jigirya Yankaba Hadeja Road, were unsuccessful. Some residents of the area claimed ignorance of the NGO’s presence.

Daily Trust reported that the state government has ordered a crackdown on non-governmental organisations promoting LGBTQ activities after a video of a Hisbah medical personnel went viral.
