The Kano State Hisbah Command has arrested 11 women in Sabon Gari area of Fagge local government on Monday for allegedly organizing a lesbian marriage, according to a Kano Today report.
Officer in charge of the operation Nasiru Ibrahim said the Hisbah Command received intelligence report that Safiyya Yobe was about to get married to Fatima Gezawa at the event.
According to the paper, Mr Ibrahim said the Hisbah Command raided the event and arrested 11 women, including the alleged ‘groom’ and ‘bride’.
However, one of the suspects Fati Jaririyar Zuciya said they organized the party in honor of the appointment of Fatima Gezawa as deputy chairlady of their dance club while the alleged ‘groom’ Safiyya Yobe is the chairlady of the club.
In April 2007, there was a similar a case in Kano when a woman called ‘Aunty Maiduguri’ allegedly wedded four wives when she organized a party to raise money for a sex worker who was getting married to a man.
