Nigeria’s drug law czar, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, has seized 46.8 kilogrammes of capsules suspected to be Tramadol in Adamawa State.
NDLEA commander in the state, Mr. Idris Bello, in an interview with the newsmen on Saturday in Yola, the state capital, disclosed that the drug was worth N50m.
Bello said the drug was seized in a house at Unguwan Madina in Mubi town.
He explained that the command had also seized 82 blocks of compressed substance, weighing 79 kilogrammes, believed to be cannabis sativa, in Lamurde Council of the state.
“The Adamawa Command of NDLEA, on February 19, successfully arrested a suspect, with 225mg of Tramadol tablets, 100mg capsules and Diazepam tablets, all weighing 46.8kg,” he added.
According to the NDLEA commander, since January, the command has arrested no fewer than 136 suspects in connection with drug-related cases across the state.
Bello, nevertheless, disclosed that during the period under review, 12 people were convicted, while 67 cases were still at the Federal High Court, Yola.
He attributed the achievements recorded within the period to “dedication and sacrifice” by the personnel, working with other sister agencies, vigilance groups and the communities.
While acknowledging the support of the federal and state governments to the command, he assured that with the support of stakeholders, NDLEA would continue to cripple the activities of illicit drug dealers in the state.
“I am warning illicit drug merchants to either leave the state or be arrested and dealt with accordingly,” he added.
