Upcoming Sokoto Law Will Mandate Mosquito Nets To Be Included In 'Bride Price'

An upcoming law in Sokoto state will mandate potential suitors to add insecticide-treated mosquito nets to the bride price they pay before getting married.

The couple will also have to undergo testing for sickle cell gene and enrol for a state community contributory health scheme to reduce the cost of medical treatment, according to the law.

Sokoto health commissioner Balarabe Kakale said the law makes it compulsory for couples to undergo testing for HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B.
