Shatu Garko, the 18-year-old winner of Miss Nigeria 2021 has been condemned by The Kano State Hisbah Board, a.k.a Sharia Police, for participating in the beauty pageant.


Speaking with BBC Pidgin about Shatu Garko’s victory, Hisbah noted that it was illegal for Shatu Garko to participate in any beauty contest in the Islam religion.


Hisbah indicated on seeing Garko’s parents to talk to them about allowing their daughter participating in the beauty contest, and letting them know the implications of what they did.


“We (Hisbah) have confirmed that Shatu Garko is a muslim from Kano state and her parents come from Garko Local government area. Kano is a sharia state and this is why we would not allow the matter to pass,” Hisbah stated.


“We will invite the parents to talk to them about the actions of their daughter and the fact that what she did is illegal in Islam in case they don’t know so that she would not continue in that path and also stop other girls from copying her.”
