The Kogi State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has arrested a serving police inspector with a police truck loaded with 75 bags of substances suspected to be cannabis.
Forty-three-year-old Abali Zagi was among the 14 suspected drug peddlers paraded on Monday at the Kogi State Command of the NDLEA.
The state Commander, Muhammed Bello, put the street value of the over 800 kilogrames of the cannabis found with the inspector at N4m.
The suspect was said to have gone to Okpila in Edo State using the Force headquarters, Abuja, welfare bus to transport the cannabis.
“When he got to the Crusher area of Lokoja, luck ran out on him as he was apprehended together with the truck, with number plate NPF 7973 C,” Bello said.
The command also paraded three suspects arrested by the army with 190 bags of substances suspected to be cannabis.
They were said to have been arrested along Crusher Road on their way to Abuja.
Their vehicle, a Honda car, marked, Kano BC 737 KMC, was apprehended by men of the Army Record, Lokoja.
The commander said he would not tolerate the excuse of joblessness, adding that drug peddling aided other crimes.
