NDLEA arrests two suspects, recovers weapons in Jigawa – Nigeria Latest News Headlines

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested two suspects in connection with drug-peddling in Jigawa.

The Commander of the agency in the state, Mrs. Josephine Obi, made the disclosure at press briefing on Thursday in Dutse.

She said the command also recovered one locally-made double-barrel gun and some drugs from the suspects.

Obi said the suspects were arrested on Sunday at about 8:00 p.m. by officers on routine patrol along Kano-Ringim road.

She said two tablets of Tramadol, one wrap of Indian hemp, two daggers and several charms were also recovered from the suspects.

“These suspects were arrested by our men last Sunday along Kano-Ringim road during a random stop-and-search on commercial vehicles.

“In the first instance, only two tablets of Tramadol and one wrap of Indian hemp were recovered from them.

“But, further check led to the discovery of one locally-made double-barrel gun with one cartridge fully loaded, two daggers and several charms.

“This is why we keep saying that there is always a close link between the use of drugs and commission of crime,” she said.

The commander said the suspects would be handed over to the police for further action.
