The Police Command in Kaduna State said its operatives have arrested four suspects with 50kg of Indian hemp at Unguwar Mai Hayi in Makarfi.

According to the command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mansur Hassan, a gun was recovered from the suspected drug dealers when the operatives raided their base.

Mr Hassan told journalists on Tuesday in Kaduna that the arrest followed actionable intelligence received from a good Samaritan in the community on December 4.

“On getting the information, our operatives mobilised to the area where four suspects were arrested and one locally made gun recovered in the house,” he added.

Mr Hassan however said the police were on the trail of the principal suspect.

The command spokesman added that the four suspects would be prosecuted upon completion of the ongoing investigation.
