Iro said that the suspected drug trafficker was a resident of Mailalle village in Sabon Birni Local Government Area.
“Our investigation revealed that the suspect was taking the items to the Eastern zone of Sokoto, notorious as hideout of bandits in the state.
“Therefore, by implication, the items are to be supplied to the bandits who continue to terrorise the innocent people in the zone,” he said.
Iro said that the command would ensure proper, but speedy investigation on the matter in order to charge the suspect to court.
The NDLEA commander appealed to the general public to continue to support security agencies with vital information to tackle criminality and security challenges in the state.
