The Nigeria Customs Service, Federal Operation Unit (FOU) Zone ‘B’ Kaduna has arrested a Nigerien Sahabi Adamu in Kano with three Ghana-Must-Go bags filled with tramadol tablets with street value of N30 million.
The Comptroller of the zone, Sarkin Kebbi Mustafa, said the three Ghana-must-go sacks contained 1,146 packets of 225mg tramadol tablets.
He said that the arrest was made possible through a covert operation which lasted for more than 30 days, adding that the suspect was a member of a syndicate group that specialises in the distribution and sales of such drugs within Kano and neighbouring states.
“One suspect, Sahabi Adamu was arrested in Kano along Kano – Hadeja road with three Ghana must go sacks with tramadol tablets packed in an Honda Accord vehicle with street value put at N30 million.
“The FOU has been on his trail for almost one month now until luck ran out on him and he got arrested in Kano.
“The suspect has confessed not to be alone in the business and promised to help in the arrest of other members of his syndicate. According to him, he has been in the business for some years and this is his source of livelihood,” the comptroller added.
Comptroller Mustafa said that the FOU under his leadership would not relent in its efforts to rid the zone of illicit drugs and bring culprits to justice.
