The Sharia police command (Hisbah) in Kano has disrupted an alleged wedding ceremony between two men and arrested one of the grooms.
The arrested was confirmed by the Hisbah Sharia Guard commander, Aminu Daurawa, who told reporters that the other groom in the illegal union is at large.
The arrested groom, Faruk Maiduguri, was paraded alongside fourteen others who were at the venue of the 'wedding ceremony'.
Sheik Daruwa told reporters that the Sharia police swooped down on the men at a recreational resort in Dawakin Kudu local government area of the state.
Hisbah commander said,“we got intelligence report that some youth, all men were planing a wedding of two of their friends, and that Faruk and Abba (bride) who is on the run had under the guise of celebrating Faruk’s birthday sent out invitation on WhatsApp and printed out cards that friends should join them in the epoch-making event.”
In response to the accusation, the suspected homosexual Maiduguri denied getting married to his alleged partner, Abba.
He said that they were at the venue to celebrate his birthday and that he is not a homosexual as being accused by men of the Hisbah board.
