NDLEA raids smokers’ joints, arrests 64 persons with hard drugs

Jigawa State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency,
NDLEA, has arrested 64 suspects, including a female, for being in
possession of 17.55 kilograms of substances suspected to be illicit
drugs.

The state commander of the NDLEA, Josephine Obi, made the disclosure
on Saturday in a statement made available to journalists, adding that
out of the suspects, 61 were found to be end users while the rest were
dealers.
According to Obi, the command would subject the suspected users of
the illicit drugs to counselling while the dealers would be arraigned.

According to her, the command had attained the feat by embarking on
constant raids on the hideouts of the suspects across the 27 local
government councils of the state.
She added that the operation, which began last month, was aimed at ensuring a crime-free general election.
The statement added: “In the operation that began in January, 2019,
we’ve so far dislodged many joints of illicit drugs. The state command
has arrested 64 suspects, including a female. A total of 17.55 kilograms
of various drugs and substances were seized.

“Among the substances seized include: Cannabis Sativa, Tramadol,
Exol, Dapsol, Diazepam, Codeine, Rubber Solution and Formalin, popularly
known as ‘Suck and Die’.”
