The Anambra State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has intercepted 25.2 kilograms of Methamphetamine worth 1.7 billion Naira from a vehicle carrying the dangerous substance.

Addressing journalists at the Onitsha Command of the Agency on the latest development, the State Commander, Mr. Sule Momodu, says the command received intelligence information of the shipment of the dangerous drugs into the state for onward movement to Lagos.

In a swift stop and search exercise, the agency luckily intercepted the substance and arrested a 31 year old suspected hard drug dealer, Vincent Chidiebere.

Mr Momodu said the chemicals used for the production are highly toxic and can cause permanent destruction to the ecosystem while posing a serious health hazard to the community where it is produced.

He reminded the public that Governor of the state, Willie Obiano, has pledged a reward of half a million Naira to anyone with information on where the substances are being produced within the state and assured of the readiness of the command, with support from the public in the area of information, to fight the illicit drug production and peddling in the state.

In a similar development, the Anambra State Police Command also paraded 20 suspected cultists and another notorious armed robbery suspect.

The new State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sam Okaula, reiterated his crime fighting commitment and warned all criminal elements in Anambra State to relocate as the prevailing peace and security in the state can never be compromised.

Mr. Okaula said he has directed the Divisional Police Officers, Area Commanders and Heads of Departments to display their numbers for the public to access, as his own would also be displayed to ensure a collective attack on crime and criminality in the state. (Channels TV)
