Kano State Hisbah Board says they have impounded three vehicles laden with 5,800 bottles of beer.
Commander-General of the Hisbah Board, Dr Harun Ibn-Sina, made assertion on Monday in Kano while inspecting the impounded vehicles at the Hisbah office.
The board’s spokesman, Malam Lawan Fagge, stated that the three vehicles were impounded.
He said they are in a Mercedes Benz car, which had 1,800 bottles of beer in it; a Sienna minibus, conveying 3,000 bottles of beer and a Volkswagen Golf car conveying 1,000 bottles of beer.
Fagge stated that Ibn-Sina commended the anti-intoxicants unit that impounded the vehicles for its efforts at ensuring the stoppage of consumption of alcoholic beverages and harmful drugs in the state.
He assured that the board would not relent in its efforts at sanitising Kano State of all forms of vices, especially drug peddling and abuse.
He directed the Legal Department of the board to follow due process by handing over the consignment to the court for necessary action.
