      Sharia: Over N250m Liquor Destroyed
      From Segun Awofadeji in Bauchi,
      This Day (Nigeria)
      02.10.2005

      As part of efforts to ensure strict compliance to Sharia Law ,
      Bauchi State Sharia Commission, has destroyed alcoholic beverages
      worth over N250 million and demolished the popular liquor brewing
      and consumption centre in Moroko.

      Acting Chairman of the Commission, Ustaz Muham-mad Babangida
      Muhammad, who disclosed this in Bauchi yesterday while reviewing
      activities of the Commission, said it is committed to strict
      compliance with the Sharia Legal System, adopted over four years ago.

      According to him, about 25 people have been arrested and charged to
      court for anti-sharia activities during the year under review,
      adding that the reconciliation committee of the Commission also
      received 250 cases of complaints involving couples and other people,
      and treated them accordingly.

      He reminded non muslims that Sharia was meant for Muslims only, and
      therefore should have nothing to fear over its execution.

      Muhammad said the Commission has distributed over N1 million as
      Zakat in Bauchi metropolis, adding that the Zakat Committees of the
      remaining 19 Local Government Councils have also distributed money,
      animals and farm produce worth several thousands of naira as Zakat
      during the year under review.

      He, however, expressed displeasure over the lukewarm attitude of
      some wealthy Muslims towards the payment of Zakat, and therefore
      called for a change of attitude.
