Two suspected drug traffickers have been arrested by the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency who posed as police officers in the Nasarawa area of Kano metropolis.

Kano State Commandant of NDLEA, Alhaji Hamza Umar, told newsmen in Kano on Tuesday the suspects were arrested in a brand new escort vehicle with police colour, siren, pilot plate number and in possession of two police caps.

He said the suspects were arrested while blaring the siren and pretending to be police officers while conveying 715 kilograms of Indian Hemp to Yobe.

Umar said, “During investigation by our officers, we discovered that the suspects were from Edo State, while their destination was Gashua in Yobe State.

“The two suspects who were arrested along with 715 kilograms of Indian hemp disclosed to us that they normally convey such exhibits once a month.”

The commandant said, “If those people had succeeded in their mission to their destination, Yobe State, where the issue of insecurity is a major concern, only God knows what would have happened.”

One of the suspects told newsmen that he was offered N200,000 to convey the Indian hemp to Gashua.

Meanwhile, the command has also arrested a lorry with Ebonyi State Government plate number on its way to Libya through Kano, loaded with 64 kilograms of Indian hemp hidden in fish packs.

The commandant said the lorry was apprehended along with the driver and three other persons.

“We are still investigating the suspects and I assure you we are getting more information from them that will assist us in getting the real owner of the exhibit.

“At the end of our investigation, the suspects would be taken to the Federal High Court to face the law,” Umar said.

The NDLEA boss added that in April alone, the command intercepted over four tons of different illicit drugs and arrested 42 suspects, out of which seven had been convicted.

Adamu Garba attacks Hillary Clinton for calling out President Buhari over #Lekkimassacre

Former presidential candidate, Adamu Garba has hit back at Hillary Clinton’s comment on the Lekki shooting

Recall that the former US Secretary of State had asked President Buhari and the Ngerian military to stop killing young Nigerian #EndSARS protesters.

Reacting to this, Adamu alleged that Hillary and others were playing at the entire breakdown of law and order in Nigeria.

He added that the former US Presidential candidate and other left wing actors have a sole agenda of fighting God and nature, turning people into aliens, gays, lesbians.

Adamu also described them as “blood sucking abortionist” who must leave the shores of Nigeria and Africa.

He tweeted;

I told you that we knew the script these guys are playing at: the entire breakdown of law & order in Nigeria Same Hilary spearhead the destruction of Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and even Egypt at some point wants to import venom in Nigeria Nigerians are wiser, no way for you here

As most traveled & least accomplished Secretary of State of U.S, Hilary’s underwhelming Middle East policy saw the destruction of families, women, children, properties, government & people. This they planned to extend to Nigeria. She is not qualified to tell Nigeria what to do.

Let all these evil left wing actors, whose sole agenda is to fight against God and against nature, whose mission is to turn us into aliens, gays, lesbians, blood sucking abortionist, leave the shores of Nigeria and Africa We say NO to foreign medlars and alien cultures. Thanks.
