Operatives of the Nigeria Police have arrested two major Indian hemp dealers in Adamawa State.

The state Police Command on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, disclosed that large quantities of Indian hemp, as well as two operational vehicles, were recovered.

Suleiman Nguroje, the Police public relations officer, said in the statement that frequent Border Operations aimed at preventing and dislodging bandits from their current operational spaces and denying them space to regroup in other parts of the state led to the arrest of the suspects and seizure of drugs.

“The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Toungo swung into action and luckily apprehended the suspects,” he said.

He gave the names of the two suspects as Ibrahim Audu, 31 years old and a resident of Ganye town, and Alkasim Musa, 32, also from Ganye.

“Both dealers were smuggling large caches of cannabis into the state through Dakalaji, Taraba border, Kiri District on 16/8/2021,” he explained.

“Note also that Border Operation is a good initiative and will critically evaluate the pattern of crimes in the State. There shall be a massive and well-planned deployment of both human and other operational assets of the Command to reinforce and consolidate on keeping Adamawa safe.

“The border Operations is aimed at re-dominating and reclaiming the public space from criminals that are bent on threatening security in the state and bringing the offenders to book,” the Police stated.
