The Kano State Hisbah Board has seized a truck loaded with 3,600 crates of assorted beer covered with bags of chicken feeds.
In a video shared by BBC pidgin, the Commander General of the Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, was seen with some other members of the board uncovering the camouflage as they recovered some crates piled behind the bags of feeds.
The truck was said to have started its journey from Kwanar Dangora to Kiru town in Kano State.
This comes five days after the Islamic police confiscated two vehicles loaded with 5,760 cartons of assorted beer on the Kano-Madobi road. The Public Relations Officer of the board, Lawan Ibrahim-Fagge, had disclosed this last Wednesday.
The statement quoted the Commander-General of the board as saying that the perpetrators were apprehended by Hisbah officials around 4am on Wednesday.
“Hisbah board has prohibited the sale of beer in the state to avoid being intoxicated,” he said.
Ibn-Sina added that the board would continue to sustain the fight against drugs and other intoxicating substances among youths in the state.
He commended the efforts of the Hisbah corps, volunteers and stakeholders, for their commitment, adding that the unwholesome practice had been a source of concern to the society.
