NDLEA Arrests 120 Suspects In Kaduna


At least 120 suspected drugs traffickers and addicts have been arrested by the NDLEA in Kaduna State from January to date.

“The agency arrested 74 suspected drug traffickers, seized 15.342 tons of illicit drugs, secured 10 convictions and rehabilitated 68 drugs addicts from January to March,” State Commander, Mr Samuel Azige, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna on Sunday.

“While 44 suspects were arrested, 155 kilogrammes of drugs seized and 10 convictions secured from April to date,’’ he said.

However, he noted that there has been a slight decrease in illegal drugs related offences in the state in the second quarter when compared with the first quarter of the year.

He attributed the success recorded by the agency as a collaborative effort with other security agencies in the state.
