Commenting on the rampant involvement of women in heinous crimes in recent times, which sometimes result to homicide, the Amirah of FOMWAN has condemned the act describing the situation as not only a source of worry but from the Islamic point of view it is forbidden to both married couples to be involved in homicide case even though under whatever circumstance .

While commenting on the upbringing of children under Islamic morale decadence, Hajiya Kaltume Abare advised parents especially to be extra vigilant on the activities of their children especially their day today activities, their play mates and regulate the programmes their children should watch on the television, and above all avoid allowing the under aged to have access to the use of GSM among other things.

The FOMWAN Amirah maintained if all these rules are observed she is optimistic that our children will grow up morally upright.
