Video: Kano Hisbah arrests man who put himself up for sale for N20m
The Kano State Hisbah board has arrested 26-year-old Aliyu Na Idris, who put himself up for sale for N20 million.
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that the young man said to be a tailor went viral on social media last weekend after he was found roaming the streets of Kano, carrying a placard that reads “This man is for sale for N20 million“.
Aliyu disclosed that he initially presented himself for sale in Kaduna, but moved to Kano after he couldn’t find a buyer.
The Commander-General of the board, Sheik Harun Ibn-Sina, who confirmed the latest development on Wednesday, October 27, said that the young man was arrested because it is forbidden in Islam for one to sell himself.
“Yes we arrested him yesterday (Tuesday) night and he spent the night with us but I haven’t interrogated him,” he told BBC News Pidgin, adding he would speak with Mr Idris later.
