Police bans sale of fireworks in Nasarawa



The Nasarawa State police command has placed a ban on the sales and use of fireworks in the state.

The state’s Commissioner of Police Adesina Soyime announced the ban in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, Rahman Nansel, on Friday in Lafia.

He said the ban was aimed at preventing hoodlums from using it to perpetrate their nefarious activities during the yuletide.

The police commissioner urged community leaders, parents, and guardians to warn their children and wards against indulging in buying/igniting fireworks.
