The Commissioner of Police, Delta State, CP. Adeleke Adeyinka, has said that the ban on the use of fireworks is still in force, adding that the Command will enforce all the extant laws prohibiting the use of fireworks such as “knock-out,” “banger” etc.
In a press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Delta State Command, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, the CP noted that “the ban is necessary to safe-guard public safety and avoid distractions to security operatives, especially during the yuletide season.”
The press statement also read: “Parents/guardians are advised to guide their children and wards appropriately as anyone arrested will be prosecuted according to the law.”
Adeyinka assured Deltans of their safety at all times and called on them to continue to support the police and other security agencies in their untiring efforts at providing a peaceful and secure environment for the people.
