The Police Command in Kano State on Monday warned against the use of knockout and other fireworks in the state.
The warning was issued by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Charge of Sabon- Gari, Mr Shuaibu Bello, a Chief Superintendent of Police, during a stakeholders meeting in Kano.
Bello said the command had observed the rampant use of knockout and fireworks during festive periods in the state.
He advised parents, guardians, religious leaders and ward heads, to caution their children and followers against the trend as the law banning fireworks and knockout is still in force. The DPO warned that the command would not hesitate to deal with anyone caught.
