According to several reports the Kano State government ordered for the destruction of over a million bottles of beer estimated to be worth two hundred million naira (N200M).
The 1,975,000 million bottles of beer were destroyed at Kalebawa in Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of the state.
According to the state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje the destruction was carried out because consumption of alcohol was forbidden in Islam.
“Consumption of alcohol and all other intoxicants could distort the mental capability of a person and that it is forbidden in Islam,” the Governor stated.
