He said the department would soon seek a court order to destroy the items as the subsisting Sharia law which was implemented in 2003 prohibits sales and consumption of alcoholic drinks.

Mr Balarabe, who displayed the confiscated drinks at the premises of the state Sharia commission, said no fewer than six operators of beer parlours were arrested during the patrol and they would soon be prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.

”The only places where sales and consumption of alcoholic drinks are allowed are military and police barracks, national parks. We are fully committed to implementing our mandate,” he said (NAN).

KanyiDaily had also reported how Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje orderded Hisbah police to destroy 1,975,000 bottles of beer, worth over N200 million, confiscated within Kano metropolis.
