The Katsina State Police Command has arrested a suspected notorious drug dealer with 180 parcels of dried leaves suspected to be Cannabis Sativa.
The suspect, Abdurrazaq Ajibade, residing behind Magama Restaurant in Katsina metropolis, was arrested while attempting to smuggle the prohibited items to the Niger Republic.
Parading the suspect at the Command headquarters on Friday, September 16, the police spokesman, Gambo Isah, stated that Ajibade confessed to having been in the deal six consecutive times each of which the sum of N60, 000 is being offered to him as his commission.
“The command succeeded in arresting one Abdulrazak Ajibade, ‘m’, of Kofa community, Kwara state, a suspected notorious drug dealer in possession of large quantities of dried leaves suspected to be cannabis. During the course of investigation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the offence. Investigation is ongoing,” the PPRO stated.
During the interrogation, the suspect also stated that he was arrested at ‘Welcome to Katsina Gate’.
