The director-general of the board, Abba Sufi, said the products were intercepted by their operatives in Dawakin Kudu Local Government Area of the state in 2016.

“The alcoholic drinks were destroyed on Tuesday at Dawakin Kudu under the watchful eyes of our staff and other officials of the board,” he said.

Mr. Sufi said all those arrested in connection with the smuggling of the products into the state had been charged to court.

“Stringent measures were taken to arrest those who are bent on violating the Shariah, which prohibits consumption, carrying, sale or transportation of beer in the state.
