Kano Hisbah board to destroy one million bottles of beer

The Kano State Hisbah Board, on Saturday, confirmed that it would destroy over one million bottles of beer it confiscated from traders within the Kano metropolis.

The KSHB’s Assistant Commander on Special Duties, Mr. Nahabani Usman, who made the disclosure, said the action was in compliance with the penal code of the Board, which prohibits drugs or any intoxicating substance, Punch Metro reports.

The assistant commander urged professors and other wealthy individuals, who had only one wife but intended to marry more, to pick the forms from the Board or from his office.

According to him, the move is to make them participate in the forthcoming mass wedding of widows and divorcees being sponsored by the state government.

“I am appealing to professors or wealthy individuals, who are interested in having more wives to come forward and collect the forms for registration to participate in the mass wedding,” he stated.

  3. It’s the right of the people to drink or not, every state or tradition has their norms which should be respected, if they say no to alcohol then so be it

  4. He have no right to destroy another man’s efforts.and encouraging people to marry more than one wife is not ideal

  5. What a story from fighting against alcohol to picking of forms for those that want to marry more than one wife to come and get registered for the mass marriage, this is quite known as end time

  8. God help us and give us the grace to serve you the more,both Christian and Islamic religion are against the drinking of alcohol and I see no reason if they destroy the alcohol and concerning the mass wedding it’s has been there for long ,it is there state they know what is good for them.if that is what they want so be it.

  9. Yes is not for the country be embarrassed with I think they took good steps because the country is a religion country

  10. Destroying goods because it is a Islamic state, does that means many of the alahjis and Alfas does not knw how they drink beer in corner???

  11. Yes, there av a right to eliminate alcohol from their state, but what about collection of form for marrying more wife’s

  12. Good job for the bottle destroying, but the massive wedding, very funny, this is not how God ordained marriage.

  13. What of waste of resources. …instead of destroying the beer bottle they could have supplied the drinks to a state that tolerates drinking

  14. Nigeria is a secular state and not a sharia state. The constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria did not ban Alcohol and I see no reason why these traders cannot challenge these seizing of their goods in conventional courts to stop its destruction. To me, it is wrong.

  15. Since islamic religion allows more than one wife no problem. But why destroy the bottles knowiny fully well its someone,s busness?

  16. Why always alcohol.as they destroyed bottle of beer is normal thing.God please help us in this country concerning alcohol

  17. Am I the only one seeing this? It looks like Nigeria Brewery bottles. This story is so unclear. Govt sponsored marriages and fighting use of drugs. Ok

  18. Hmm they have done the right things to do as per as Kano is an Islamic State so I see no reason they alcohol most not stop ALCOHOL MUST STOP

  19. Like seriously is this part of kano laws what are we or the world turning into this is uncalled for say no to alcoholism

  20. those people taking alcohol beer to Kano, like to waist there money, because it’s forbidden in the state.

  21. This is really serious but if the Islamic State does not want achol then they Should tell them instead of breaking it.

  22. Promoting polygamy but discouraging alcoholism. It’s ok by them. At least that of alcoholism should be jettisoned because of the harm it causes.

  23. Which one is picking form again for wedding, so all widows and widowers must remarry, what a place. That’s just laughable.

  24. I think this is very wrong
    Beer consumption didn’t start yesterday. It has been there from the good old days. So y would someone just come from no where and start destroying beer?

  25. That thing they’re doing won’t even stop people from patronising the suppliers of these products. They should just introduce means of sensitising and teaching the public on his these issues will benefit them.

  26. Muslim wahala is the company forcing you to drink their products ?
    Destroy their bottle doesn’t make any sense at all

  27. I see no reason if they destroy the alcohol and concerning the mass wedding it’s has been there for long ,it is there state they know what is good for them.if that is what they want so be it

  28. is this man joking mass wedding, w dont need your decision. men are already getting one than one wife

  29. Why always alcohol.as they destroyed bottle of beer is normal thing.God please help us in this country concerning alcohol

  30. Pure rubbish. Alcohol has nothing to do with the present situation. The so called hisba should think of how to help improve the economic status of the state not this rubbish act. 80% if not 100% of indigenous kano are chronic smoker of all toxic products

  31. What kind of attitude is this, if they are alcoholic in nature does that warrant them destroy another man’s hard earn mone

  32. This is rubbish why would they destroy alcoholic drink is it being forced on anyone,and also telling people to get more wife,total rubbish

  33. I think that’s a good step in reducing the consumption of beer in the state . Despite the fact that it’s a muslim state

  34. Interesting to know, What a story from fighting against alcohol to picking of forms for those that want to marry more than one wife to come and get registered for the mass marriage, this is quite known as end time

  35. Mass wedding is not a news in Nigeria even the Catholic Church priest organise mass wedding for their members,

  36. Nawaoo, wonders shall never end in dis Nigeria, what’s their business with beer drinking and also……which one is mass wedding again bayi, and there’s application form for those who are interested in marrying……..Lwkmd

  37. Kano state political strategy: massive marriage for widows and those who wanna marry more than one wives sponsored by the state. Lolx

  38. Is that really necessary
    Destroying those drinks doesn’t change anything, those who still indulge in consumption of alcohol will always find a means to continue

  39. fighting against alcohol to picking of forms for those that want to marry more than one wife to come and get registered for the mass marriage, this is quite known as end time

  40. What do alcohol got to do with religion…. Sometimes they leave what they suppose to fight and fight the wrong things…..What they destroying ryt now is millions of Naira….

  41. Giddy have mercy which kind of law is dat… Dish am in agreement with d intoxicated drinks destroyed bt d other wan is too much ooo

  42. As for me destroying millions of intoxicating substance wouldn’t stop people from getting intoxicated. You can’t stop people from getting high, you can only help control the way they abuse it and that can only be done through other measures not by wasting your time and energy destroying other people means of income.

  43. Damaging already made drinks will never stop people from drinking. Better advice them not to be drunk. Then on the issue of mass wedding that should be for those that do not wed with their first wife.

  44. Professor or wealthy people is that the ticket for having more than one wife for your mind?
    Is marriage a goods that you peple are advertising it?

  45. The truth is alcohol is bad,but I don’t understand the aspect of mass wedding. Are they now encouraging polygamy? It is well

  46. It’s ok to destroy the beer bottles but they will still find a way to drink it. This mass wedding is the one that got to me my question is.are the.People to be married willing parties or is matchmaking and forced marriage?

  47. Polygamy is now a normal routine abi….?
    Traders should avoud going towards kano with this alcholic drink to avoid wasting their resouces since is not welcome there

  48. They have no right to do so. There are other matters pertaining to the state that should be handled rather than alcohol.

  49. Nice work May god safe us kano Governor should have to increase more security agent in other to get solution to this problem

  50. You can’t stop people from drinking alcohol but you can minimize the level of alcohol they are consuming and stopping those that have not attained the age of 18yrs not to take it.

  51. I guess they are destroying such amount of bottles to reduce alcohol abuse in the state, but what did they say about mass wedding, i have never heard of such before, how could such a thing be allowed into practice to encourage general multiple wifes

  52. I commend them for it is a step in the right direction. The level of drug abuse and alcohol use in the North is too high.

  53. Aside the fact that the state is Islamic in nature they have rules and people should have respected the law. But the mass wedding is huge.

  54. IG an Islamic state like kano don’t do alcohol because being a Muslim is against alcoholism, they should go ahead and destroy but pay the company back its losses.

  55. I agreed with the destroying alcohol part, which one is Mass wedding and collecting forms to participate, unserious elements

  56. Nonsense . The one they are suppose to ban , dem no ban. It is bottles of beer they are destroying. Yeye

  57. For their mind, they are doing good.
    Mass wedding.
    Anybody that wànt to drink will drink
    Encouraging polygamy!!!!! Haba.
    Who are we deceiving.
    U sponsor polygamous marriage and disappear.
    Let the men suffer the quarrel and troubles that will come next

  58. First and foremost ,government I understand that alcohol is not part of the kano tribe but please understand that this is a way of bringing about poverty in to the society.

  59. One million bottles of beer to be destroyed. What of the ones they pour into kettles and sip it like water. Let’s be sincere to ourselves

  60. Destroying the bottles of beers or mass wedding for widows is not accepted by me. Allow them to make their choice on this

  61. Is Nigeria a sharia country? Or is Kano outside Nigeria? This is wrong, that your religion is against alcohol doesn’t mean others are not taking it, you can’t just destroy these traders hard earned money or means of living.. See advert for people that want to marry more wives.. I laugh..

  62. What has alcohol get to do with religion? Is it only drinking alcohol that is a sin?
    Just look at the way they destroy someone business.

  63. So beer is not accepted in Kano…hmmm why ?…is there any rule bounding that….i dont understand….so what’s the correlation between marriage

  64. Why de story someone’s money. Those thousands bottle cost a huge sum of money, they should have been considered. The picking of form to take more wife is very funny.

  65. The destruction of the beers actually got my attention… But when I read to the point of mass wedding… It actually got me.. Na wa o

  66. If not because people working dere will become jobless I will have been happy if dey can just shut down or the production company.

  67. Wonders shall never end don’t tell me that in this hard economy some people don’t have important things to do with their time they are still jobless…..
    Just imagine….

  68. I dont understand this country anymore. if other states start destroying things that they believe that presence is against there belief.

  69. I understand the destroying bottles of beer part, which is cool by the way but which one is picking form and attending a mass wedding again? What won’t we see in this country?

  70. If you destroy 1 million or 1 billion, it won’t stop the drinkers from drinking. You’ll just be destroying someone’s money hard earned

  71. All these Northern state with their practices ehhh! Is marrying more than a wife an achievement? I dnt understand them at all. They want to destroy drinks too…hmmmm….it is well oh.

  72. I don’t think that’s right seriously becaeeither destroyed now it will still be in kano abi it will be a sort of rule ne I don’t understand anyway their state their way of governance

  73. Not really good in destroying the bottles, all in the name of rejecting alcohol from their state at least they should tell the company to fold up.

  74. Nawa oooo
    These is very very bad ooooo
    And these things is some persons source of living
    These is really unfair ooo
    It’s not making sense at all

  75. Someone’s hard earned money is what you destroyed just like that in the the name of what you believe. Is well. God help Nigeria!

  76. The assistant commander’s comment about more wives is actually hilarious. Muslims have always been against intoxicating substances.

  77. Am against the marriage form but i think the destruction of bottles too is a bit harsh to the owner

  78. I just feel when they are meant to be busy with ithwe things I feel important these seems more important to them. All the best

  79. I don’t really understand what is going on in this country these day mass wedding and the distraction of alcohol, what was all that about

  80. Am sure this their mass wedding will involve child marriages… Northerners should receive sense biko

  81. it is a good idea but which one is government supporting mass wedding again.. No more good project to execute?

  82. This is a religious belief and is called sharia law. They believe drinking of beer is a sin. So to them selling of beer is against the law.

  83. I love this step . I don’t see any benefit from beer. They should look into other things like underage weddings.

  84. why destroy peoples source of income? its not fair. adults know what they want. anyone who wants beer can have it. there are behaviour than taking beer that could be curbed

  85. Destroying one millions bottle of beer can’t solve the problem they should just sit and think about better solution

  86. For the record
    Alcohol is no sin except in excess
    It could lead you down the road
    Worse still is that these are self righteous people who go into their hiding to do same thing they come out to condemn
