Governor of Gombe State, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, has ordered the closure of nightclubs in the state, following reports of “unholy things” done at these various places during the night.
This statement came through the desk of the secretary to the state government, and the Police, NSCDC & Operation Hattara have been tasked to mobilise personnels inorder to ensure strict compliance to the order.
The affected nightclubs are : Jami’a Gidan Wanka located at Mile 3 Yola Road; White House Theatre (Babban Gida) located at New Mile 3 Yola Road; Gidan Lokaci; General Merchant located at Mile 3 Reservoir Road & Farin Gida Entertainment II located at Wuro Karal, Kalshingi Road.
Cases of incessant immoral, criminal activities and security breaches have being reported to be a norm in those aforementioned nightclubs.
The North West State is not the first to make such rule, as other states like Lagos and Osun States have done same in the past, due to noncompliance of the rules guiding the particular State.
