Kibiya said the arrests were made following reports from residents of the areas.

The statement said, “The culprits were five females and three males, eating in the afternoon in the month of Ramadan.”

It further explained that the board would continue to conduct raids in all parts of the state to curb the development.


  1. This is all that these morons and fools have to offer when there is so much security and poverty issues in the North. The real Muslims in the gulf don’t go to these extreme because they want their countries to develop. The world is advancing, and you cannot practice oppression and expect foreigners to come and invest here. These are the practices that drags the country backward.
