The Kano state police command has stated that Elijah Ode, a barber in Kano widely reported on Wednesday to have been arrested for blasphemy, was arrested for a different offence.

Earlier reports had claimed the barber was arrested in Kano for allegedly giving his customers haircuts which offend the Islamic faith in the Sabongari area of the state.

The reports claimed that the religious extremists were uncomfortable with the type of haircuts he has been doing and that made the group to punished 2 of Ode’s customers on last week Wednesday because the haircuts were against the tenets of the Islamic religion.

The reports further alleged that Elijah was apprehended for having hands in the whole haircuts saga and has been in Police custody with the 2 customers since last week.

Squashing the claims, Abdullahi Haruna who is the incumbent Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) in Kano said the accused was apprehended over an allegation of rape.

The PRO informed newsmen in Kano that it was some groups of people who planned to forment trouble that made a false report that the viral Kano barber was apprehended for religious blasphemy.

An official staff of Hisbah in Kano had equally said the agency never apprehended Ode in the first place while responding to the newsmen concerning the issue.He made it known that Ode is never in the custody of their association at all.

Why is Hisbah personnel's are more effective in the Northern States than Nigerian Police Force? What the hell is wrong with NPF IG? However, they could equally resign if tired, so Nigeria government can employ the proactive employee to combat the country security problems nationwide.
