The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested 21 suspected drug dealers in Taraba State.

The suspects, including one person accused of supplying drugs to Boko Haram insurgents, were paraded on Thursday at the NDLEA office in Jalingo, the state capital.

Mr Suleiman Jadi, the state commander of the agency, disclosed that officials seized about 299.6 kilograms of drugs within four months of operation.

The NDLEA state commander said Mohammed Ibrahim – the suspect said to be a major supplier of drugs to Boko Haram – was nabbed with 153 compressed blocks of Cannabis Sativa, also known as Marijuana.

He stressed that unemployment and peer group influence were the major reasons why youth indulge in drug abuse.

Jadi, who noted that they were faced with various challenges as a unit, said nine of the suspects have been charged to court. (Channels TV)
