Kano Sharia Police bans ‘Black Friday’, says it’s ‘immoral’
The Kano State Hisbah Board has prohibited the conduct of the planned holiday clearance sales tagged “Black Friday” by a radio station in the state.
The religious police, in a November 26 letter to the management of Cool FM 96.9 Kano, warned the station’s management that the demography of the state’s residents is predominantly Muslim, hence considers “Friday as Holy Day.”
The Hisbah corps subsequently demanded an immediate retraction of the “Black Friday” tag.
It added that the religious squad “will be around for surveillance purposes with a view to avoiding occurrence of any immoral activities” in the state.
Black Friday is a special shopping period when retailers offer promoted sales to customers. But the sale may be hampered in Kano, where members of the religious police have banned sale of alcoholic drinks, restricted social interaction between men and women, amongst other measures.
