Qxd 10/02/2009 11:25 Page 39 An alternative explanation of Bori’s origins would help them avoid this dilemma. ’ This led some British observers to conclude that Bori was not a ‘traditional’ African custom, but a ‘modern’ problem that arose when Africans were detached from their traditional, rural roots and brought to live and work in colonial cities. In 1909, for example, a British official in Bauchi, an emirate southeast of Kano, reported: Bori is now most generally practiced in the “barrack” markets and small villages close to a Government Station where there are a large number of soldiers, police, servants, labourers etc.

Qxd 10/02/2009 11:25 Page 16 many of my acquaintances focused intensely on the issue of control. A man needs to ‘control’ his wife, they said; at the very least he must be made to feel as if he were in control. This notion of control, especially the controllability of a potential wife, lay behind many young men’s preferences for the type of woman they said they wanted to marry: village girls are more controllable than city girls, uneducated girls are more controllable than educated ones, and so on.

The federal government thus averted a political crisis that some feared could escalate into civil war. I arrived in Kano in June 2000 shortly before the state government staged an elaborate public ceremony ‘launching’ Shari’a. As the largest state in the region, its ceremony attracted hundreds of thousands of people (including several ‘yan daudu friends of mine) and a host of dignitaries from as far away as Libya and Saudi Arabia. In preparation for the ceremony the government mobilized police and posses of Shari’a-enforcers known as hisbas to go around the state warning bar-owners of the impending ban on alcoholic beverages and admonishing ‘prostitutes’ [karuwai] to get married or to leave the state.
