The command also revealed that it had seized a total of 2,193.889kg of cannabis sativa, popularly called Indian hemp, in the last two months.

The Kogi State commander of the NDLEA, Alhaji Mohammed Idris Bello, told newsmen, while parading the suspects in Lokoja, that the woman, alongside her daughter, were arrested on Lokoja- Abuja road during a stop and search operation, adding that they were caught with two travelling bags filled with 43Kg of cannabis sativa.

He added that the command made another breakthrough in Kabba, where it arrested a middle-aged herbalist with 10kg of weeds suspected to be India hemp and five live ammunitions at his residence in Ben Thomas area. The herbalist, according to the NDLEA commander, claimed to be into alternative medicine and a member of vigilance group in Kabba.
