The head of the Kano Hisbah police, Sheik Harun Ibn Sina, said he expected the emir’s daughter to abide by Islamic regulations
Hisbah is known for imposing penalties on individuals convicted for flouting the strict dress prescribed by regulations
The Hisbah Police in Kano state has criticised the bridal shower gown worn by Zahra Bayero, the fiancé of Yusuf Buhari , son of the Nigerian president.
The Hisbah boss, Sheik Harun Ibn Sina, told the BBC Pidgin that people who are sharing videos and photos of the dress are committing sin.
He said the emir’s daughter as a Muslim is not above the law and should have lead by example if she wants blessings for her marriage.
Princess Zarah Bayero wore the dress at her frozen-themed bridal shower event.
Hisbah is known for enforcing a strict dress code according to Islamic regulations.
The organisation recently banned tailors, supermarkets, and boutique owners from using mannequins to display clothes in Kano state .
It described the use of the mannequins for advert purposes as idolatry, noting that it contravened the provision of Islamic injunctions.
The agency saddled with the responsibility of Shariah doctrine enforcement warned that it would embark on raiding of those places to remove them.
