The Kano state government arrested no less than 30 herbal medicine peddlers for using vulgar language to advertise their products in the state.

These practitioners roam the main streets and markets using loudspeakers to advertise their products to their respective customers.

The exercise that led to the arrest of the street vendors was spearheaded by the Agency for the Management of Private Health Institutions, PHIMA.

The Agency’s executive secretary, Usman Tijjani Aliyu, said the task force also seized 30 cars and wheelbarrows used by the culprits.

Aliyu said, “The task force was established by the Kano State Ministry of Health and my agency (Private Health Institutions Management Agency, PHIMA) was mandated to carry out the exercise.

“Like yesterday, Sunday, we have arrested 30 guilty for using vulgar language to advertise their products. During the first exercise, we arrested 13 and now we arrest another 17 of them. The exercise continues.

“We also seized thirty cars and trucks used by the culprits.

“The task force is mandated to disinfect the activities of people who go to the streets and markets to use loudspeakers and vulgar language to advertise their products. And the exercise continues.

“They were detained around Gyadi-gyadi / Court Road, Yan kaba bus stop, Janguza market, Kofar ruwa, Katsina road, Yan kura and Bata.

“The Taskforce of the management agency of private health institutions is in an uproar to free the people of Kano state from the threat of the rampant sale of traditional medicines using vulgar words.

“The agency would like to express its appreciation and gratitude to the good people of Kano for their support and information that they have been continuously providing to the Task Force,” Aliyu said.

The working group has the support of security operatives that includes the police, NSCDC, Hisbah, among others.
