Tue Dec 31st, 2019 - Jigawa
 

The Kirikasamma Local Government Area in Jigawa State has enacted a law that bans members of the opposite sex from meeting at night.

The local government information officer, Sanusi Doro, said the council chairman, Salisu Kubayo, signed the law after ten councilors of the local government area unanimously agreed to it during a council meeting. The signing of the law was done in a ceremony widely attended by residents of the area.

Doro said the ban was due to rampant cases of out of wedlock pregnancy among girls.
