Isa Sanusi of BBC Africa in Kano, Nigeria writes;

“I was in Kano earlier this week to collect material for a feature I’m working on and checked into hotel where I was asked to sign this slip below:

Every guest at most hotels here are required to sign such statements because of random raids by the Hisbah – the city’s Islamic police force.

The Sharia officers search the hotels looking for single women, who they always assume are prostitutes.
  •     Sharia was introduced in Kano in 2000
  •     Prostitution, gambling and the consumption of alcohol are banned
  •     Christians living in Kano are not subject to Islamic law”
