The Ondo State Police Command has banned the use of fireworks such as bangers, knockout and other explosives during this Yuletide season.
Femi Joseph, the Ondo State Command’s Public Relations Officer(PPRO), disclosed this in a statement on Friday.
He urged parents and guardians to caution their offsprings against using bangers, knockout and other explosives.
The statement read in part, “Parents and guardians are advised to warn their children and wards from using such fireworks under the guise of celebrating the Yuletide as criminals often use this opportunity to commit havoc.
“Similarly, those who engage in the sales of these items are also warned to desist from such business as buyers, users and sellers are all culpable under the law.”
