In a dramatic demonstration of its campaign against drugs, the Kaduna State Government has announced the immediate suspension of a traditional ruler who was arrested on drug related offence.

A statement by Samuel Aruwan Special Assistant to the Governor Media and Publicity on Thursday in Kaduna, said on 20 January 2016, the NDLEA arrested Ibrahim Danladi while he was in possession of a 1.5kg of marijuana. Danladi is the village head of Goma in the Gimi District of Sanga Local Government Area of the state. He admitted ownership of the illegal drug, and the NDLEA will be charging him as soon as it concludes investigations.

“The NDLEA subsequently notified the Kaduna State Security Council of the arrest of the traditional ruler.

“While deliberating on the matter, the Council recommended his suspension from office pending the conclusion of investigations and possible trial. The government accepted the recommendation,” the statement added.
