Two suspected drug dealers have been caught by the National Drugs and Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Kano State.
The suspects named Abdul Abubakar Mohammed and Ibrahim Mustapha, were captured with 2.927kg of cocaine, said to be the first of its sort in the state.
Presenting the suspects before news men on Saturday in Kano, the Commander, Dr. Ibrahim Abdul said luck ran out of the two suspects after his men trailed them to a hotel on Katsina Road, in Fage Local Government Area of the state after two months of investigation.
“ We have adopted proactive methods for effective policing and investigations as it relates to drugs. We have been on the trail of the suspects for the past two months after intelligence gathering by our vigilant officers”.
This is happening after the recent execution of a Nigerian woman as well as arrests by the Saudi Arabia authorities for drug trafficking.
The two suspects, while interviewed by news men revealed they hail from Maiduguri and are both business men who deals in Caps and Cola nuts respectively but lost their source of livelihood due to Boko Haram insurgency.
