Popular Cleric, Kano Hisbah Boss, Sheikh Daurawa resigns amidst Gov’s comment

By Suleman Tudu

The popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, has resigned as Commandant-General of the Kano state moral Police, Hisbah.

He announced his resignation in a video he posted on his verified Facebook page on Friday (today) following “some demoralizing comments.”

“I am sorry to the Governor about the angry comments he made (about Hisbah operations). He should please forgive me as I have resigned from this appointment he gave me in Hisbah.”

Gov Abba Yusuf comments;

Daurawa’s resignation comes a day after Governor Abba Kabir publicly criticized the way Hisbah operates in Kano state while addressing a section of Islamic scholars at Africa House, Kano State Government House on Thursday.

He said: “I saw a video that disrupted my peace. You parked cars and went to where males and females were doing unholy things. They were picked up and beaten with bamboo sticks while they took to their heels. They were being packed up inside the vehicle like animals. This, I think is a big mistake for you to hold an adult and throw him like a goat into a Hilux.

“Hisbah is a board that we take in high esteem and bring in God fearing people that we know they can deliver given the people’s mandate in line with what is right.

“I want to call on the attention of agencies saddled with the responsibility of putting youth on the righteous paths, especially Hisbah.

“The meaning of establishing agencies like this is to do the right thing and also advise us and all stakeholders on the right thing to do.

“We want the right thing to be done, what if, God forbid someone got injured on his spinal cord, he is finished. I saw a video where students’ rooms were raided, beaten and thrown into the vehicle.

“There is a problem, we establish a board to help strengthen Islamic values but if these things are like this, the children will not also obey. What we want them to change into will then be the opposite of it. God forbids.”
