No fewer than 484 suspected drug traffickers in Bauchi State have been arrested for various drug related offences, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has disclosed.

Also seized are a total of 4, 465kg of different kinds of illicit drugs.

Commander of the NDLEA in the state, Segun Oke, disclosed this at a briefing at the agency’s headquarters in Bauchi, the capital, adding that the seizures were made between June, 2018 and June, 2019.

He said that the success recorded by the NDLEA within the last one year was as a result of the synergy between the agency and other sister security agencies in the state.

He said, “As a Command, we reached out to people in terms of public awareness. We also go about searching to see the level of response.

“We regularly go to places of gathering where you can find people, churches, mosques, motorparks, schools, to synergise and create awareness.”

“During the year under review, we undertook activities mostly preventive through awareness creation, and corrective measures such as search, arrest, seizure, and in some cases, prosecution to curb drug menace in the society.”
