The Commander-General of the board, Sheikh Harun Ibn Sina, made this known in a statement issued to newsmen on Wednesday, adding that the use of mannequins for advert purposes contravenes Islamic injunctions.
According to Mr Ibn-Sina;
Hisbah prohibits the use of mannequins at shops, commercial and private residences and other public places.
This violates Islamic provisions, it is also responsible for immoral thoughts among some members of the public, all these are against Islam.
We have divided Kano into five areas for the monitoring and implementation of the ban across the state.
He also said that the agency would embark on sensitisation of the people to educate them on how Islam frowns on the use of the mannequins, while the agency will send its officials to apprehend and prosecute offenders.
