The National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested two suspected drug traffickers who posed as police officers in Nasarawa area of Kano metropolis.
Kano State Commandant of NDLEA commandant in Kano, Alhaji Hamza Umar, told newsmen in Kano that the suspects were arrested while blaring the siren and pretending to be police officers not aware that they are conveying 715 kilograms of Indian Hemp to Yobe.
He said, “During an investigation by our officers, we discovered that the suspects were from Edo State, while their destination was Gashua, in Yobe State.
“The two suspects disclosed to us that they normally convey such exhibits once a month and one of them told the newsmen that he was offered N200, 000 to convey the Indian hemp to Gashua.
He said that “if those people had succeeded in their mission to their destination, Yobe State, where the issue of insecurity is a major concern, only God knows what would have happened”.
However, Umar also added that the command has also arrested a lorry with Ebonyi State Government plate number on its way to Libya through Kano, loaded with 64 kilograms of Indian hemp hidden in fish packs.
 “We are still investigating the suspects and I assure you we are getting more information from them that will assist us in getting the real owner of the exhibit. He added that the end of our investigation, the suspects would be taken to the Federal High Court to face the law,” Umar said.
The commandant said the lorry was apprehended along with the driver and three other persons. He added that in April alone, the command had intercepted over four tonnes of different illicit drugs and arrested 42 suspects, out of which seven had been convicted.
