The police have cautioned the public against the use of fire crackers during the festive season.

According to the police, the ban was still being enforced and that anybody caught using it during the festive season would be penalized.

This followed widespread use of fire crackers during Christmas in some areas despite the ban. Some people attributed the development to a relaxed supervision by the police.

However, the Director of Police Public Affairs Superintendent Cephas Arthur told Accra based Citi FM that the police were still enforcing the law. He said details and possible arrest will be determined after the festive season.

“The ban against the use of fire crackers is still being enforced. The fact that you hear some people firing it doesn’t mean that the warning has been thrown overboard. Yes, whenever there are human beings and there are laws you will get people flouting them so the police are looking for people who are flouting them.”

“I think what is important is to intensify public education because some of these people fire them at the nooks and crannies of their residences and it is difficult finding police men at the time they are firing but the ones that we find firing, we will deal with them.”
