The Kebbi State Hisbah Committee has recovered 21 abandoned babies and 13 abducted spinsters between January and December 2017.
The state’s Director of Shari’a, Abubakar Augie, made this known in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday.
He said 82 cases of missing children were resolved and all the children had been reunited with their parents.
He added that the committee resolved 327 disputes between spouses, friends, parents and children, among others.
Mr Augie said “let me use this opportunity to appeal to parents to monitor the whereabouts of their children at all times and to be mindful of their activities among peers.”
The director explained that 33 youths were arrested for drug addiction and were handed over to the appropriate authority for rehabilitation and counseling.
He appealed to the state government to resuscitate the 21 local government Hisbah offices for smooth operations, noting that “the work of the committee is enormous and offices in local councils must be up and doing.
“The offices also need the support of state government, as well as other security agencies,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, in Kebbi said it had resolved 220 civil cases within the period under review.
The Commandant, Sammani Ringim, said the corps also resolved 16 disputes between farmers and herdsmen within the period.
He said “we resolved 220 civil disputes and settled 16 disputes between herdsmen and farmers from various communities in the state from January to December in 2017.
“Most of the clashes between herdsmen and farmers were caused by increase in dry season farming that denied herdsmen of grazing land.
“We settled the clashes amicably by deploying agro-rangers in Augie, Argungu, Bagudo and Suru local government areas of the state,” Mr Ringim said.
Mr Ringim said the command also handed over six rapists to the Police Command in the state who were subsequently prosecuted.
