Kano residents are expressing dismay over the increasing cases of cemetery fires in the metropolis.
KANO TODAY reports several cases of fire incidents in cemeteries around the metropolis due to the activities of marijuana smokers.
A resident of Kabuga in Kano city Mr Aminu Kabiru explained that cemeteries have become the hideouts of criminals.
“Some of these criminals throw away the butts of their marijuana wraps thereby setting the grass on fire,” he said.
Mr Kabara lamented that as “final abodes of all people cemeteries need to be purified not desecrated.”
Reacting on the issue, Mr Yusuf Tukur Tarauni, assistant secretary to the committee responsible for cemeteries in Kano said government is aware of the activities of the hoodlums.
He warned them to stop using cemeteries as their hideouts or risk being arrested.
“Not only hoodlums, even grass sellers shall take note that cemeteries are not places of business and should therefore stop going there to cut grasses,” he added.
