Suspected Military Officers Arrested With Hard Drugs

Share This

By ABBAS JIMOH --- The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has intercepted two suspected fake military officers in a new VIP edition of Toyota Hilux Jeep loaded with 394 compressed parcels of illicit drugs concealed in different parts of the vehicle.

The spokesman of the agency, Jonah Achema, said on Tuesday in Abuja that the suspects – Mohammed Nura and Abubakar Dahiru – were intercepted by operatives of the Kogi State Command of the NDLEA along Okene-Lokoja expressway on Monday, February 15, 2021.

He quoted the Commander, Kogi State Command of the anti-drug agency, Mr. Adewunmi Alfred, as saying that the VIP edition of the Hilux Jeep was properly searched during which 394 compressed blocks of cannabis sativa were discovered in different compartments of the vehicle.

“Our initial investigations have revealed that the consignment was taken from Lagos and heading to Kano for delivery,” Alfred said in a brief to the Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Brig-Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) on Monday.

“Though the two men identified themselves as military officers but that did not sway our men from a thorough search of their vehicle and the result was the discovery of the illicit drugs tucked in every hidden part of the vehicle. Indeed, we suspect the two men to be fake military officers until proven otherwise.”

He added that the vehicle has been impounded, the illicit drugs seized and the suspects detained for further investigations. (Daily Trust)
