Nigeria Police Arrestes During the Ramadan Month

He said the search would continue indefinitely. In any event, non-Muslims are not within the ambit of this objective.

“We found 11 people on Tuesday, including a woman who was selling groundnuts and was seen eating her produce and some people later informed us,” the Nigerian police said.

March 14, in Abuja Ramadan, the month of compassion, pardon, and salvation, has once more begun. As one of the major tenets of Islam, fasting is observed with religious solemnity by Muslims worldwide.

One such incident is Muslims who break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan being detained by Nigeria’s Islamic police. A portion of this mostly African nation had several residents imprisoned during the fasting month when it was found that they were eating throughout the day.

On Tuesday of the week, 11 Muslims were taken into custody by Islamic police in the northern state of Kano, Nigeria, according to sources. They have been seen eating while fasting during Ramadan.

Sources report that a large portion of Kano’s population is Muslim in addition to the implementation of Sharia law, which sits alongside Islamic common law. Furthermore, during the long month of Ramadan, Islamic police routinely search food shops and marketplaces, sometimes referred to as “Hisbah”.

Among the 11 people arrested last Tuesday, one woman and ten men. After promising not to miss another fast on purpose, they were released.

“We found 11 people on Tuesday, including a woman who was selling groundnuts and was seen eating her produce and some people later informed us,” the Nigerian police said.

They also said that “the remaining ten men and one woman among those caught were rounded up from all over the city, especially from the market.”

He said the search would continue indefinitely. In any event, non-Muslims are not within the ambit of this objective.

“We will not arrest non-Muslims because it (fasting) is not aimed at them and we will arrest blasphemers if they are seen as guilty of a wrongdoing,” Lawal Fez explained. In addition, or at the very least, those who prepare food offered to Muslims should be fasting.

Regarding the detainees, the Islamic Police spokesman said they have been assured to start fasting immediately, and “we have to call their family members or the gatekeepers so that some group of them may target them.”

According to police sources, twelve states in northern Nigeria adopted Sharia law alongside secular law. Each of these provinces is primarily inhabited by Muslims.

Remember that in the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is the tenth month. In Islamic tradition, this month holds great importance. This month marked the revelation to the Sacred Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) of the primary refrain of the Heavenly Qur’an.

Remember that Ramadan is the ninth month of Islam. The importance of this month in Islamic tradition is immense. In this month the first verses of the Holy Quran were revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
