The Hisbah Command in Borno State has shaved the hair of a number of young men in the state.
The security outfit on its Facebook page on Monday, April 24, 2023, said the haircuts were done during the Eid celebration.
Hisbah in the statement said its personnel carried out “the task of monitoring the interaction of young men and women.”
According to the state deputy commandant, Mallam Abdurrahaman Musa, the Islamic police decided to shave their hair because the hairstyle was against the good morals and culture of the people of Borno State.
“The army is determined to see how the youth are bringing out new inappropriate behaviors during the prayer ceremony.
“In view of the government’s order to go home to the zoo where she shaved many youths, most of them are underage children.
“According to D.C.O Mal. Abdurrahaman Musa “the barbering on the children’s hair is against the good morals and culture of Borno State.”
Hisbah is an Islamic doctrine on upholding community morals based on the Qur’anic injunction to enjoin good and forbid wrong. It is otherwise known as the enforcement arm of Sharia law.
