Nigeria: Police Warn Fireworks Sellers At Bwari

The police at Bwari Division have warned sellers of fireworks that if they are caught selling them, they will be arrested and prosecuted.

Bwari Divisional Police Officer, Superintendent Coker Shado, sounded the warning Sunday night, while responding to questions from our reporter.

He said the ban on the sales and usage of fireworks at any season is still in force and the police will not take it lightly with anybody caught selling or using them.

The police officer said his division has mapped out strategies to curb any form of criminality in the area during or after the festive season.

According to him, day and night patrols have been intensified in the area by the police, while people with criminal minds have been warned to either desist from such acts or relocate from the area.

"There are no hiding places for such people as we are going to trace them and apprehend them," he vowed.

The police officer urged the public to always give useful information that can lead to the arrest of suspected criminals in the area, adding that the job of providing security should be everybody's responsibilities.
