The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has nabbed two suspected fake military personnel in a new VIP edition of Toyota Hilux Jeep filled with a total of 394 compressed parcels of prohibited drugs concealed in different parts of the vehicle.
The suspected fake military personnel; Mohammed Nura and Abubakar Dahiru, were arrested by vigilant operatives of the Kogi state Command of the NDLEA along Okene-Lokoja expressway on Monday, February 15, 2021.
According to Adewunmi Alfred, the Commander, Kogi state Command of the anti-drug agency, the VIP edition of the Hilux Jeep was properly searched during which 394 compressed blocks of cannabis sativa were found in different compartments of the vehicle.
”Our initial investigations have revealed that the consignment was taken from Lagos and heading to Kano for delivery. Though the two men identified themselves as military officers but that did not sway our men from a thorough search of their vehicle, and the result was the discovery of the illicit drugs tucked in every hidden part of the vehicle. Indeed, we suspect the two men to be fake military officers until proven otherwise” Adewunmi said
He went on to add that the vehicle has been impounded, the illicit drugs confiscated and the suspects detained for further investigations.
