Police Warn Against Use of Fireworks, Knock-Out in Abuja
As part of the effort to forestall any act that will create unnecessary tension and cause a security breach, the FCT Police Command wishes to remind residents that the ban on the use of fireworks/knock-out is still in place. Residents are therefore warned against using it.
While calling on residents to be vigilant and report all suspicious movements to the police, parents and guardians are advised to caution their children and ward against the use of fireworks/knock-out as criminals could hide under the same guise to commit crime.
All Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers have been directed to ensure strict compliance with the existing ban on the use of fireworks and knock-out in the Federal Capital Territory. Those arrested for violating the ban will be prosecuted.
In case of distress, the Command can be reached on: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883.
