Imo State Police Commissioner Rabiu Huissani has declared a state-wide ban on the use of fireworks and other explosives.

Huissani made the announcement on Sunday, December 12, saying that such fireworks and explosives could endanger people’s lives by causing heart attacks in the elderly and fires.

He also stated that it could be used as a distraction by criminals in order to rob or kidnap their victims. CSP Michael Abattam, the Command’s spokesman, said in a statement:

The command will enforce all the extant laws prohibiting the use of ‘ Knockouts ‘, ‘Banger ‘ etc especially this yuletide season.

“It is common knowledge that hoodlums use such Fireworks and Explosives to cause distraction, panic and consequently pandemonium and in the process rob / kidnap unsuspecting victims.

“To forestall crime and criminality in the state parents/guardians are advised to educate and guide their children and wards against the use of fireworks and other explosives. Wholesalers / Retailers of such items are equally warned to stop distribution/ sales of fireworks in the state as anyone found complicit will be arrested, the fireworks or explosives confiscated and such person(s) prosecuted forthwith.”
