Anambra Police Ban Firecracker on Xmas, New Year Celebration
The Anambra State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that this year’s Christmas and New year celebrations, like the previous ones would be conducted peacefully. To this end, the cooperation of members of the public are being solicited.
The use of Knock-outs, Firecracker and other forms of fireworks in the town constitute a serious security risk as it is capable of misleading the security personnel on apparent danger of gunshots as well as engender fear in the minds of the peace-loving citizens.
In view of this, Parents and Guardians are advised to warn their Children and wards from purchasing and using knockouts as the law governing the sales, purchase and use of Fireworks is still in Force.
Members of the public are equally enjoined to refrain from unauthorized use of Sirens, tinted glasses and covering of vehicles plate numbers.
Groups or persons desiring to commit the above stated offences are warned to desist as any breach of the public peace will attract severe Legal consequences.
Finally, The Public is assured of our commitment as all crime prevention strategies are put in place by the Command to ensure Safety and Security before, during and after the celebrations.
