Commandant of the Commission, Dr Adamu Bello Kasarawa said they had wanted to arrest the DJ that performed at the dinner but he escaped.
He explained that what happened at the dinner was not permissible in Islam and that it was their mandate to correct anything that was against Shari’ah law being operated in the state.
Kasarawa added that the instruments along with other devices seized across the state would be destroyed.
He said they recorded 157 cases of illegal pregnancies involving under age and those who were 18 years old and above in 2016.
