Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase has reminded Nigerians that the ban on fireworks and fire crackers is still in force.
Arase stated this today in a statement issued by the Force PRO, ACP Olabisi Kolawole.
“It has come to the knowledge of the Nigeria Police Force that some Nigerians have started using fireworks and firecrackers in anticipation of the yuletide celebrations.
“With the present security situation, occasioned by recent bombings in parts of the country, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, is advising Nigerians to desist from using fireworks, otherwise called “knock out” as the ban on it is still in force.
“This warning becomes crucial as there are reports that hoodlums are now using fireworks to confuse Nigerians in order to carry out their nefarious activities.”
