The Commissioner of Police in charge of Delta State, Ari Muhammed Ali has warned that the ban on the use of fireworks is still in force and
that the Police Command would enforce all the extant laws prohibiting the use of ‘knock-out’, ‘banger’ etc especially during this Yuletide season.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Command’s spokesman DSP Bright Edafe quoted the Commissioner as advising parents/guardians to guide their children and wards to desist
from using them. Retailers of such goods have equally been warned to withdraw from the sales of these products as anyone arrested will be prosecuted.
To this end, the Commissioner has directed all Area Commanders, Divisional Police officers and Tactical Commanders to ensure strict
compliance with the ban on fireworks in their
respective Areas of Responsibility.
