The Kano Command of the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested two suspects in possession of 2.927 kilograms of cocaine in the state.

The NDLEA Commander in Kano, Dr. Ibrahim Abdul, who disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Saturday, said the suspects were arrested in a hotel along Katsina road in the city.

He noted that, the arrest was first of its kind in the Kano Command similar to its recent discovery of an Indian hemp farm in the state for the first time also.

He explained that for over a month, the command has been trailing and monitoring the movement of the suspects following an intelligent report by its men. He added that the suspects were arrested while swallowing the cocaine to be transported to Sudan en route Saudi Arabia. Abdul said that the arrest was part of the command’s effort towards bringing to the end, the issues of drug abuse and trafficking in the state.

“An onslaught meted on the hard drug barons resulted in the arrest of two suspects, Abdul Abubakar and Ibrahim Mustapha and also the seizure of 2.927 kilograms of cocaine for the first time in the command”, he said.

    Shola, it is not about “they heading there”. It is about despite Saudi tough law on drugs they still decide to transport drugs.

    They lucky they were arrested in nija. There is possibility of being released or sentenced to minimum jail instead of death sentence in Saudi.

    You see why they deserve death sentence now?. Obviously, jail or lecturing then to stop doing drugs will not stop Miranda from transporting drugs. Therefore, I support death sentence all the time.

    In the time of Buhari-Idiagbon during military regime, a Nigerian man was nabbed for importing cocaine into Nigeria. It was Sheikh Adam(ra) who issued fatwa(religious edit) to sentence him to death based on kilograms he carried. Since then Saudi Arabia adopted death sentence for drug trafficking.

    You got to keep taking their heads off until they stop doing drugs. No one forces them to swallow. It is a choice. It is not like drugs are found in their check bags because someone may sneak drugs in there. But swallow drugs it’s a choice.

    People have to take responsibility for their actions. Since they value get rich quick measures over and above their own lives, there’s no need preaching to them anymore. It’s a futile effort and waste of time. That’s another way of reducing the population. Ride on, ladies and gentlemen
