The Kaduna State Police Command said its operatives have arrested four suspects with 50 kilogrammes of Indian hemp at Unguwar Mai Hayi in Makarfi.
According to the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mansur Hassan, a gun was recovered from the suspected drug dealers when the operatives raided their base.
Hassan told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Kaduna that the arrest followed actionable intelligence received from a good Samaritan in the community on December 4.
