Kano Hisbah arrests man who put himself up for sale for N20m (video)

Aliyu Na Idris, 26, was detained by the Kano State Hisbah board after he advertised himself for sale for N20 million.

Remember that the young guy, who is reported to be a tailor, became popular on social media last weekend after he was seen strolling the streets of Kano with a banner that says “This man is for sale for N20 million.”

On Wednesday, October 27, the board’s Commander-General, Sheik Harun Ibn-Sina, confirmed the new situation, saying that the young guy was jailed since it is illegal in Islam to sell oneself.

“Yes we arrested him yesterday (Tuesday) night and he spent the night with us but I haven’t interrogated him,” he told BBC News Pidgin, adding he would speak with Mr Idris later.
