Metro Oyo State Police Command to Arrest Seller, Users of Fireworks this Christmas

The Oyo state police command on Wednesday said it was ready to arrest sellers and users of fireworks in the state during the yuletide.

The acting Spokesperson of the command, ASP Inyang Ignatius, said that the ban on fireworks was still in force.

"Fireworks such as knockouts, bangers and other explosives, which were traditionally used in celebrating the yuletide remain banned.

"This is because the use of these fireworks might constitute a threat to security, thus allowing hoodlums to perpetrate their criminal acts.

"Officers have, therefore, been put on standby to clampdown on persons selling and using any of these fireworks". (NAN)
