The Kazaure Local Government Area of Jigawa State has destroyed 475 bottles and Jerry-cans of assorted beer in the area.
 
Alhaji Magaji Muhammad, the Information Officer in charge of the council, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria in Dutse on Thursday.
 
Muhammad said that the items were those confiscated from different vendors operating in the area by Hisbah guards.
 
Hisbah, a Sharia law enforcement agency in Jigawa, has prohibited the consumption of beer in all parts of the state.
 
He explained that the items destroyed included 337 bottles of beer, 37 Jerry-cans of local beer (Buruku) and 101 bottles of psychotropic substances.
 
The spokesman quoted the Chairman of the council, Alhaji Jamilu Uwais, during the exercise as warning the beer vendors to change trade or face the full wrath of the law.
 
Uwais pointed out that the council would continue to fight against immoral acts, including consumption of alcohol in the area.
 
Muhammad further said the council boss also advised residents to desist from engaging in vices and other immoral acts capable of destroying the society.
