Yuletide: Police ban use of fireworks in Enugu

Published

on

The Police Command in Enugu State has reiterated its ban on use of fireworks, knockout and bangers this Yuletide.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said this in a statement made available to the Nigeria News Agency on Tuesday in Enugu.

Amaraizu noted that the ban was due to their explosives safety and security implications.

He said: “Their usages are capable of diverting the attention of security agencies from knowing when things are going wrong in our environment.

“It could also ignite an inferno when thrown either knowingly or unknowingly to inflammable materials in our environment and considering the dry season and its associated situations.’’

According to him, the command is advising the public, parents and caregivers to warn their children and wards against the use of fireworks.

The police spokesman noted that the command, in partnership with other sister security agencies and relevant stakeholders, had been directed by the commissioner of police to fish out violators.

Violators will be made to face the consequences in line with the relevant sections of the law.

“The command further advises members of the public to be security conscious and law abiding,’’ he added.
