NDLEA :116bags of cannabis in kano. The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s Kano State Command has seized a sizeable quantity of Cannabis Sativa, dismantling a huge drug cartel in the process.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the command’s senior public relations officer, Sadiq Maigatari, disclosed the information.

He said the bust, which took place at Garindau near the bridge of Wudil in the Wudil Local Government area of Kano State, resulted in the seizure of a whopping 116 bags of cannabis, weighing in at an astonishing 1,553.1 kg. The stockpile contained 66 bags of loose cannabis along with 50 bags of compressed cannabis, each bag containing 25 blocks totaling 1,250 blocks.

He further said this successful operation was the result of a well-coordinated surveillance operation, based on vital intelligence reports along with the coordination of resources and personnel.

He claimed that the officers, who had been working on the investigation for two months, had been successful in finding and stopping the drugs when they were loaded from Lokoja and traveling to Jigawa.

“During the operation, two individuals were taken into custody: Muhammad Abubakar, 18, of Kumbotso Local Government Area in Kano State, and Jonathan Nuhu, 45, of Kanke Village in Plateau State.

“Both individuals are believed to be part of a larger drug syndicate that specialises in transporting cannabis to northern Nigeria and distributing them to various dealers.”

The arrest, according to Maigatari, is a significant victory for the agency in its ongoing fight against drug trafficking and to uphold public safety. It deals a serious blow to the illegal drug trade and breaks up the distribution network for drugs in Kano and the surrounding states.

He continued by saying that despite the operation’s success, two further suspects managed to escape arrest and are still at large.

“The NDLEA is continuing its attempts to prosecute these offenders.

“This case is a monument to the perseverance and bravery of the NDLEA officers, who are at the forefront of the war on drug trafficking.

According to the statement, “The state Command under Abubakar Idris Ahmad, will remain vigilant and dedicated to its mission of upholding the law and protecting the good people of Kano State.”
