Rano LGA says the law aims to stop immoral activities occurring during night discussions between men and women.
Rano Local Government Area of Kano State, on Wednesday, enacted a bye-law banning men and women from meeting together in public places at night.
According to the local government information officer, Habibu Faragai, the council chairman, Dahiru Muhammad, announced the law at a security committee meeting attended by residents and traditional leaders.
Mr Muhammad said the committee had raised alarm over the high rate of immorality in the LGA, adding that the concern guided the council to come up with the new law.
He said the law was meant to sanitise the council area of immoral activities occurring during night discussions between the opposite sex.
Also, the district Head of Rano, Mannir Tafida-Abubakar, called on village and ward heads as well as Imams across the council area to ensure that residents comply with the new law.
Mr Tafida-Abubakar said there are about three major issues bordering on immorality happening in the area and had become a source of concern to residents.
“Parents must welcome the decision and support it. If parents do not cooperate and such things happen again, the affected will face the consequences of their negligence,” the traditional ruler said.
The State government had banned opposite sex from boarding the same commercial tricycles in 2019.NaijaBlog.ng
