The Deputy Commander of the Hisbah in charge of Special Service, Yusuf Nabahani, made the call in an interview in Kano.
He said the abuse of the young girls in the state has reached an alarming proportion.
Mr. Nabahani said, “I would like to use this opportunity to call on the parents to take good care of their children to know their whereabouts, friends and monitor their movements.
“The number of cases being received by the board involving girls is terrible and unless the movements of our youths are checked, the repercussions will not be good.”
He explained that a research recently conducted by the board indicated that hawking exposed most of the young girls to such abuses.
The deputy commander appealed to people in the state to complement the efforts of Hisbah in the fight against the abuse of the girl-child.
