Kano State Police Command, on Friday, seized 303 cartons of tramadol tablets.
Briefing newsmen at the Police Command Headquarters in Bompai, the Commissioner of Police, Wakili Mohammed, said the seizure, followed a tip-off, prompting a police special squad to rush to the scene and impounded the 303 cartons of the hard drugs at No. 157 Miller Road, Bompai in Nassarawa LGA.
During the raid, the police burst the syndicate at a drug factory, known as Ugolab Manufacturing Company, located in Bompai, Kano.
Wakili, said, one suspect, Chris Metuh of No. 157, Club Road was arrested and is currently in police custody.
Wakili said, ”This is how terrible the cycle of hard drugs is in Kano.”
He wondered how such a quantum of hard drugs be stored in a compound and its eventual distribution to its network.
“I will continue to seek for the support of the people, for the police to accomplish its efforts to rid the state of all forms of crime and drugs dealers,” he added.
