The Kano State Hisbah Board says selling beers is illegal in Kano as it confiscated 8,400 bottles of beers in Dawakin Kudu and Kura local government areas.
The Commander-General of the board, Harun Ibn-Sina, disclosed this in a statement issued to journalists on Tuesday in Kano.
The statement explained that “the vehicle was coming from Zaria to Kano when hisbah officials arrested the driver,” conveying the bottles of beers.
It added, “Hisbah board has prohibited the sale of beer(s) in the state to avoid being intoxicated.”
The commander-general also stated that the suspects would be charged to court once the board concluded its investigation.
