The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency says it sealed four houses and seized 1,399kg of illicit substances in Kaduna around March.

NDLEA State Commander, Mr. Umar Adoro, gave the breakdown of the drugs seized as 997.121kg of Indian hemp and 342.329kg of other psychotropic substances.

Others were 0.027kg of cocaine, 0.036kg of heroin and 59.382kg of Tramol.

Adoro disclosed in Kaduna on Wednesday that three of the houses sealed are located at Rigacikun area of the State.

The fourth, he said, was sealed at Anguwan Maigero area.

Drug peddling, trafficking and misuse had become prevalent in the two areas, he said.

The commander also said 117 suspects, including two females were arrested during the raids.

The Command recovered two locally-made guns, seven cartridges, two ammunitions and 100,000 counterfeit dollars during the March operations, he said.

Adoro also said that eight notorious drugs joints in the two areas were destroyed during the operations.

He urged the public to be watchful of movement of suspected goods in their communities and to provide useful information to the agency to curtail influx and consumption of hard drugs.

He also appealed to parents to be watchful of their wards’ activities.

Adoro reassured the public of the agency’s commitment to eradicate use of illegal drugs in the society.
