The Kano State Government has destroyed 1,970,000 bottles of beer worth N200 million.
The State Hisbah Commission took the lead in smashing the bottles on Sunday, November 8 after the court allowed the commission to do so.
Kano state in northern Nigeria is partially governed under the Sharia law and has Hisbah officers who enforce the Sharia law in the state.
Hisbah was established to enforce a distinctive Islamic government. It tackles the problems of community security in a different way, dedicated to the abolition of the business and consumption of beer, the restriction of sex work, the segregation of the sexes in public spaces, and the policing of a moral order based on Sharia.
Here are a few photos from the destruction:
