The Kano State Hisbah Board has disqualified no fewer than 20 prospective couples found to be HIV positive during the mandatory medical check ups ahead of 1,000 widows and divorcees third batch mass wedding coming up Saturday.

The Commander General of Pro-Sharia Agency, Sheik Aminu Daurawa, further disclosed that five other pregnant maids were among the 1,000 widows and divorcees to be married in a public function due to kick start simultaneously across the 44 local government areas of the state.

The shocking discovery by the Pro-Sharia Agency has already set tongues wagging as public opinion favours the prosecution of all the five pregnant women for committing offences against the provision of Sharia.

Briefing reporters on the preparation for the public wedding, Sheik Aminu Daurawa disclosed that wedding prayer session for 21 couples would hold in each of the 44 council headquarters, while the remaining 76 couples would be joined in matrimony at the state capital.
