reports that Wike prohibited nightclub activities such as nighttime trading and street prostitution, particularly along Abacha road and surrounding streets in the Casablanca area.

The move, according to Wike, will “put a stop to the harmful effects of these depraved activities on the moral development of children and society at large.”

However, it remains unclear how long the ban will last, but certainly, the Governor has less than two years left in office.

Wike further directed security agencies in the State to arrest and prosecute anyone attempting to violate the ban. He said a taskforce would be set up to this effect.

The Governor Wike-led administration will come to an end after the general elections in 2023.
