Operatives of the Zamfara State Hisbah Commission have arrested a man and woman who were allegedly having sex publicly inside a motor park in Gusau, the State capital.
It was gathered that the two people (names withheld) committed the sexual act on an open field inside the motor park, neglecting people in the motor park who were keenly watching them.
When their action became a public embarrassment, some motorists and officials of the NURTW quickly alerted officials of State Hisbah commission who rushed and whisked the culprits away.
According to one official of Hisbah (Sharia Police) who pleaded anonymity, the two sex offenders disregarded the attention of the public, and went ahead with their shameless affair till some Hisbah operatives stormed the park and arrested them.
“The man and woman who publicly had sex in the garage could not defend themselves for the public shame they brought upon themselves, signifying that they are morally corrupt.
“The two sex offenders were seen at the Hisbah commission blaming each other for the offence they had committed,” he said.
It was also gathered that the officials of the State Hisbah Commission have already arraigned the two accused persons before the City Higher Shariah Court in Kankuri, Gusau.
The Hisbah operative, who spoke with newsmen, said “the Sharia law will be applied to the case, either for fornication or adultery because their acts contravened Islamic laws and the cultural traditions of the people of the State.”
“Though in Islamic law, there is a difference between adultery and fornication with different sentences”, he added.
