Jigawa Local Government bans men and women from meeting at night
The Kirikasamma Local Government Area of Jigawa State has enacted a bye-law banning members of the opposite sex from meeting at night.
The local government information officer, Sanusi Doro, who made the announcement said the council chairman, Salisu Kubayo, signed the law after ten councilors of the local government area unanimously agreed to it during a council meeting, and added that the law was enacted following the growing cases of out of wedlock pregnancies among girls in the state.
According to the new law, henceforth, members of the opposite sex (even lovers) found violating the law would be sentenced to six months in prison with an option of N50,000 fine.
Dignitaries who commended the new law included the Chief Imam of Kirikasamma local government, Ali Liman and the Leader of Kirikasamma legislative council, Sa’idu Marma
