The Nigeria Police in Jigawa state intercepted a vehicle with fully load of 10 cartons containing 5,000 packets of tramadol capsules, during stop and search, along the Maigatari border town of Niger republic.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abdu Jinjiri, said the driver, who was the only occupant, abandoned the vehicle and fled but was given a hot chase by the police, who eventually nabbed him.

According to DSP Jinjiri” the police have already traced the owner of the illegal substance to one Isa Habibu, 29, from Gabasawa Local Government Area of Kano state.

“The substance is estimated at over N3 million, has been handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Dutse alongside the alleged culprit for prosecution.

Jinjiti, said the drug was intended to be sold in the open markets by vendors to people who patronised them.
