A small army of Islamist police ten-thousand strong are being placed on the streets of Kano, Nigeria with orders to “arrest anyone wearing sleeveless T-shirts and pants that cut off just below the knee.”
According to CBN News, the enforcement of these specifics is part of the larger enforcement of Sharia demands against “indecent dress” throughout the state.
The rules will apply to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, including Christians.
The Islamist police will also keep an eye on Kano’s rickshaw taxis to be sure “men and women [aren’t] traveling together.”
Kano is “one of nine states in northern Nigeria that has introduced Sharia law.”
