Senator Shehu Sani has lambasted Hisbah officials in Kano over the letter they wrote to Cool FM, stating that they stop calling Friday 'Black Friday' due to "Black Friday Sales" which is going on today, November 27.
According to the Sharia Police, majority of Kano residents are Muslims and they consider Friday a holy day.
Senator Sani in his reaction said the comments by the Sharia police is ''nonsensical''.
''Friday is our sacred day of prayer as Muslims.Whatever colour is added to it doesn’t matter.Hisbah’s threats against the phrase’Black Friday’ is nonsensical.They should focus on the killings and kidnappings going on in their domains.Their services are needed in the battlefield.''he tweeted.
