Yuletide: Delta Police Bans Sale, Use Of Knockouts, Firecrackers

The Delta State Police Command has warned against the sale and use of fireworks, knockouts, firecrackers, and other pyrotechnics in the State during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.

The Command’s Chief, CP Wale Abass, who gave the warning on Friday, said the use of these devices poses a threat to State security and should be avoided.

He added that the usage of fireworks (knockouts) is capable of causing nuisances, which further generates undue anxiety, fear, and an unnecessary disruption of public peace, and noted that it could give room to diversions that might give criminals the chance to continue their crimes and endanger residents.

CP Abass further warned in strong terms that any dealer or resident who fails to abide by the ban, when caught, would be made to face the wrath of the law.

While admonishing parents and guardians to monitor their wards and curtail their use of knockouts during the Yuletide, CP Abass urged the people of the State to be vigilant and security conscious, even as he reaffirmed the Command’s commitment and willingness to protect the life and properties of residents during the yuletide season and beyond.
