A Sharia Court affiliated with the Kano State Hisbah Board sentenced eight cross-dresser to three months imprisonment at a Correctional Centre. They were also given the option to pay a fine.
The sentencing of these individuals took place after they admitted their guilt during their appearance before the Hisbah Shari’a Court.
Khadi Tanimu-Sani, the presiding Judge, ruled that each of them would be subjected to 10 lashes with a cane, fined N20,000, and required to produce one surety. Failure to meet these conditions would result in a three-month imprisonment in a correctional facility.
The eight cross-dressers were initially apprehended by the operatives of the Kano State Hisbah Board. This action was taken following reports received by the Hisbah Board about young men dressed in female Fulani attire participating in a wedding event in Kofar Waika, Gwale local government area of the State.
Dr. Mujaheed Aminudeen Abubakar, Deputy Commander General of the Board, made this disclosure in a statement provided to the media on Tuesday. The suspects were detained by Hisbah operatives who had promptly arrived at the wedding scene, where they found eight young men dressed in female attire and engaging in provocative dancing.
