Aliyu Na Idris who has been making rounds on the internet for putting himself up for sale has been arrested by Hisbah, Sharia-inspired police outfit in Kano.
Hisbah boss, Harun Ibn Sina said it is forbidden in Islam to put oneself up for sale for any reason.
Mr Aliyu who worked as a tailor before deciding to sell himself told reporters that he was putting himself up for sale for N20 million because of poverty.
He added that his parents are aware of his decision and he already made plans on how to spend the money which includes a plan to pay N5 million as tax to the government, N10 million to his parents, N2 million to whoever gets him a buyer, and N3 million to his buyer for his upkeep.
Admitting that he knows he will lose his freedom if bought, he added that he is ready to face whatever comes off his decision. Aliyu also said if nobody buys him in Kano, he would move to another state to sell himself.
He was however arrested by Hisbah police in Kano.
