Kano State Hisba Board has admitted that it has two different approaches to treating the rich and poor in the state.

The board said this in an interview with the Kano based Freedom radio, while responding to an allegation that it hardly punishes wealthy class when they commit moral atrocities.

The Board’s Director, Dr. Aliyu Musa Aliyu Kibiya, argued that it is unethical for them as a moral police to publicise the wrongs of the people in power.

Kibiya said that, “We see things differently. If a leader errs it is against the teaching of Islam for us to go to the mosque and publicise it.”

“We have ways to reach out to leaders and preach to them, and our job is to deliver a message, but it is Allah that guides,” he said.

He noted that, “The way and manner in which you will call reprimand a common man and a leader differs.”

On his part the Commander General of the Board, Sheikh Muhammad Haruna Ibn Sina, argued that his organisation on different accounts had arrested the children of very influential people in the state.


  1. U people are not serious and remember u are to treat the poor and the rich equally because We are equal in the presence of Allah

  2. This is where you’re getting it all wrong, you cannot have two different approach to same moral infractions. He who must come to equity must come with clean hands

  3. It was reported that during the time of prophet Muhammad ( may peace be upon him) a verdict was pass on a theif but because he was from influential family,the family make arrangements to plead with the apostle of Allah.. He Muhammad then told them that he swears by Allah,if it were to be his daughter (Fatimah) that committed the crime, then the verdict shall be passed on him. He said that is what destroy people from before, they pass judgement only on the poor and lessen it on the influentials.
