The Kano State Hisbah Board has called for urgent action against what it says is the frightening increases in child labour, molestation and possibly trafficking of children in Kano.

The Commander General of the board, Sheikh Muhammad Harun Ibn Sina made the complaint in a statement in Kano on Wednesday.

He explained that most underaged girls employed as house helps were usually turned into slaves or are being molested by their masters and mistresses.

Ibn Sina pointed out that cases of elopement were also on the rise in Kano as the board had received various complaints from parents concerning their teenage female daughters eloping with their boyfriends.

He maintained that most of the teenage girls were found in the company of different men who had deceived and brainwashed them with fake marriage proposals.

Attributing the rise in such cases to poverty, illiteracy and negligence, Ibn Sina said the board would arrest and prosecute anyone found guilty of trafficking underaged children, involved in child molestation and drug abuse among others.

The Commander General reiterated the agency’s commitment to eradicating all forms of child labour and molestation, domestic violence, drug abuse among others.

He stressed the urgent need for parents, guardians and relevant stakeholders to work together in curtailing the menace.

He urged the general public to report any suspected character to relevant authorities for prompt action while warning people to desist from taking laws into their hands.
