National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Niger Command, has arrested one suspect with 1,008 kg of 225 tramadol at Tungan Shanu of Tafa Local Government Area of the state.
The NDLEA’s Commander in the state, Mrs Sylvia Egwunwoke, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna on Tuesday.
Egwunwoke said that the suspect (name withheld) was arrested at Tungan Shanu village through intelligence report from a good samaritan.
She said: “The command will, however, not relent in frustrating the activities of drug peddlers in the state and the nation at large.”
She then appealed to the public to always report any suspicious activity or individual to the relevant authorities, to rid the state of drug trafficking and its attendant crises.
”We have reached out to traditional and religious leaders to mobilise residents to volunteer information on those in the illegal business in their midst,” she said.
