It was gathered that the Kaduna State Command of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has seized illicit drugs worth over 30 million Naira and arrested nine suspected drug addicts and peddlers in Zaria.


Parading the suspects before journalists at the command’s headquarters in Kaduna, the state commander, Samuel Azige, said the suspects were arrested during a raid at their hideouts in Zaria where they stored the illicit drugs in a warehouse.

According to him, preliminary investigations revealed that the suspects stored in cartons banned tramadol drugs weighing over 500 grams.

He explained that the drug apart from being banned by the World Health Organisation, (W.H.O) has also expired and therefore harmful for human consumption.
