The Suleja Concern Initiative Against Illegal Beer Parlours has bemoaned the high rate of illegal beer parlours in Rafin-Sayin area of Suleja, Niger state.
The group has therefore called on the state government to immediately check the menace.
The Group Coordinator, Ramatu Abdullahi told journalists yesterday that the existence of these slums was a nuisance to the entire Suleja community, abuse of the privacy of many residents and as well brewing increased youths drunkenness and above all encouraging criminality.
“We want to call on the Niger State Governor to order for the demolition of these places and arrest the owners of such illegal beer parlours.
“It is a well-known fact that law against indiscriminate sale of beer and alcohol exists in Niger State since the previous administration of late Abdulkadir Kure through setting up of the Niger State liquor board that issues licenses for the sale of alcohol in only designated areas but with the number of illegal beer parlours and joints in the Rafinsanyin area of Suleja, the state sharia commission as well as liquor board needs to intensify more effort in order to bring the operators of this illegal alcohol joints to order and book.
“There are of course designated legal resorts and joints licensed by the liquor board in Suleja, but due to criminality, most people prefer to patronize this hideouts for reasons best known to them,” she added.
