The Kano State Judiciary Public Relations Officer, Mr Baba Jibo Ibrahim, gave this cumulative figure during his weekly update on the activities of the mobile courts.

According to him, the violators were sentenced to different sanctions and punishments depending on the circumstances of their case, explaining that some were sentenced to community service while others were fined.
