The driver and truckload of seized beer
The Kano State Hisbah Board has confiscated 8,400 bottles of beer in Dawakin Kudu and Kura Local Government Areas of the state.
The Commander-General of the board, Dr. Harun Ibn-Sina, who disclosed this in a statement issued to newsmen on Tuesday, May 25, said the vehicle was intercepted on its way to Kano from Zaria.
“The vehicle was coming from Zaria to Kano when Hisbah officials arrested the driver. Hisbah Board has prohibited the sale of beer in the state to avoid being intoxicated,” he said.
Dr. Harun Ibn-Sina also said that once investigation was concluded, the suspects would be charged to court.
