The police destroyed 240,000 bottles of beer, on Wednesday, in the city of Kano, Nigeria. More than 8,000 liters of a local alcoholic brew (“burukutu”) and 320,000 cigarettes were destroyed on the same day using a large bulldozer.
Aminu Daurawa, the Kano’s Hisbah chief, declared “the ardent hope this will bring an end to the consumption of such prohibited substances.”
