Ganduje orders destruction of beer worth N200m in Kano

Hisbah operatives destroying beer

The Kano State Hisbah Board on Sunday destroyed about 1,975 bottles of beer estimated at N200 million.

The board’s commander-general Sheikh Harun Sina explained that the board got a court order to destroy 20 trucks carrying alcoholic goods.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje had said during the exercise at Kalebawa in Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area that the consumption of alcohol is forbidden in Islam.

“Even in Kano, we have banned the consumption of beer in all parts of the State,” Ganduje, represented by his deputy Nasiru Gawuna said.

According to a statement by the chief press secretary to the deputy governor Hassan Fagge, the Ganduje administration promised to increase the salaries of Hisbah operatives.

“My administration is proud of the way you discharge your duties. I urge all stakeholders to give you all the needed support to enable you succeed,” he said.


  1. It’s a pity for the owners and stakeholders of the business. Beer is highly consumed in all the southern part of the country. Henceforth, Biafra and oduduwa republic should be signed and approved with passion to cub this type of economic waste. Those that believe in consumption of beer should have freedom and the northerners welcome ISIS agenda for the North. The Supreme God in heaven has the final judgement. In conclusion, the damaged properties should be evaluated and respond to the stakeholders to promote harmony and peaceful coexistence between the geopolitical zones. In other words, let the southerners the deem the act as a religious measure to Muslims and not as a systematic parttern of revenge to hoodlums’ activities during the endsars protest.

  2. That is what we are saying! The VAT on beer collected in Lagos is being shared with Kano and other northern state whom by Islam do not consume beer. This is not ok. There is need for restructuring. Let each state generate her revenue
