NDLEA Intercepts Men Plotting To Traffic Cocaine To Saudi Arabia
The suspects, Abdul Abubakar and Ibrahim Mustapha, were nabbed while allegedly ingesting the substance for trafficking to Sudan en route Saudi Arabia.
Briefing newsmen in Kano on Sunday, the state NDLEA Commander, Dr Ibrahim Abdul, said the suspects were arrested at a hotel on Katsina road in the city.
The NDLEA boss said the command had been monitoring the movement of the suspects for over a month, following an intelligence report by operatives.
Abdul said, “An onslaught on the drug barons resulted in the arrest of two suspects, Abdul Abubakar and Ibrahim Mustapha, including the seizure of 2.927kg of cocaine, also for the first time by the command.”
In addition, the commander stated that his men also arrested four suspects in possession of a pistol along Kano-Gwarzo road on their way to Funtua in Katsina State.
According to him, the agency dislodged 50 hotspots within and outside the metropolis, attributing the success to the command’s efforts in the fight against drug abuse.
