The Kano State Task Force on Tourism Development Levy has made it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to visit a hotel in the state, and men and women are prohibited from using the pool.
The state’s anti-discrimination agency also outlawed shisha smoking, homosexuality, and lesbianism.
Baffa Babba Dan-agundi, the committee’s chairman, told reporters this during a meeting with state hotel, restaurant, and event center owners.
The committee informed them of a new state levy aimed at cleaning up the state’s brothels in order to reduce the number of prostitution-related crimes.
The committee was constituted under the state tourism law.
“Part of our term of reference is to stop underage children from entering hotels without their parents, banning of shisha smoking, swimming between men and women in the pool, lesbianism and gay practices.
The committee will further oversee the activities of DJs at wedding ceremonies and event centres. All events centres should be closed by 11pm,” he said.
