Shedding more light on the possible crime they had committed, Abubakar said the offence contravened the Hisbah law, which forbids mingling of both genders.

However, he expressed serious concern over "the act, which, according to him, could have been replaced with a more beneficial activity that would fetch them rewards from the almighty".

Speaking further, he added that upon the completion of the investigation, the suspects would be punished accordingly.

He urged parents and guardians to keep a close eye on their children’s movements.
