The Kano State Hisbah Board has invited an Islamic school teacher (name withheld) for allegedly using his influence to sexually assault his students.
The school where the suspect teaches, which is located in the metropolitan area of the state, is owned by a late renowned cleric in the state.
According to the Hisbah board, the teacher, who is one of the sons of the late cleric, had earlier impregnated one of his students and was forced to marry her.
The Hisbah board’s commandant, Sheikh Harun Ibn-Sina, told Freedom Radio that the man did not stop there but continued to deceive his students in the name of love and defiled many of them.
Hisbah also confirmed that from the investigation they made, the teacher was alleged to have connived with his wife, whom he impregnated before marrying, thereby using their matrimonial home for the acts.
It added that after inviting the teacher, he revealed information that proved the allegations against him, noting that further investigation had commenced into the matter. He pledged that they would reveal to the public whatever action they took against the suspect.
