The police caught 34 people who were dealing drugs illegally in Abuja.
Kabir Tsakuwa, who is in charge of the agency’s operations in Abuja, shared this info in an interview with NAN on Thursday in Abuja.
Tsakuwa said they needed to do something to stop people from using drugs, especially since Nigeria is about to have a new leader.
He said that a plan called “Operation Tsaro” started on May 8th to shut down drug places and catch people selling drugs in the FCT.
The leader said that the team caught some drugs that were not allowed. This included Methamphetamine, Tramadol, Codeine, Rohypnol, and Cannabis Sativa.
He said that places where drugs were being sold and used were searched, including Torabora, Dei-dei, Wuse Zone 4, Wuse Zone 3, Banex, Garki Village, Area 1, Gwarimpa (Village, 3rd Avenue), Abattoir in Karu, Gwagwalada, Kabusa, and Kuchigoro IDP Camp.
Some people who were arrested are going to court, and others who were just using drugs are getting help through counseling.
