A ban on the use of mannequins to display clothes by tailors, supermarkets, and boutique owners in Kano state has been announced.

The ban was announced by the Hisbah, an agency saddled with the responsibility of enforcement of Shariah doctrine in Kano State.

Hisbah described the use of the mannequins for advert purposes as idolatry and contravened the provision of Islamic injunctions.

The agency also warned that it would embark on raiding of those places to remove them.

Sheikh Aroun ibn Sina, the Commander of the state Hisbah Board, announced the ban in the state on Wednesday.

According to 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.”
