As Christians celebrate Christmas and New Year, Kano State Police Command has banned the use of knockouts and burning tyres during the celebrations in the state.
This was contained in a statement signed by spokesman of the command, Magaji Majiya, and issued to journalists in Kano on Monday.
He, therefore, called on parents and guardians to warn their wards not to engage in either of the act.
According to Mr Majiya, adequate policemen are drafted and deployed to various posts at entry and exit points of the state, places of worship, markets, recreation centres, shopping malls, motor parks and robust patrol system across the state.
He noted that the aim of providing adequate security measures was to assure peaceful festivities and protection of life and properties.
The spokesman also advised road users to continue abiding by all traffic rules and regulations, warning youth in the state to avoid car racing.
