Chadian Boko Haram Drugs Supplier arrested in Taraba by NDLEA

 

Barely a week after operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, arrested a 70-year-old Nigerien who supplies Boko Haram and bandits illicit drugs; a 35-year-old Chadian who sells narcotics to the insurgents has been intercepted in Taraba state with assorted drugs.

The suspect, Adama Uomar Issa, was arrested on Wednesday, 31st March, 2021 in Jalingo, Taraba State with 21.70Kg of Tramadol 225mg and 250mg. Also seized from him were 15.7Kg of Exol.5; 100,050 and N61, 000.

According to the Commander, Taraba state Command of the NDLEA, Suleiman Jadi, the suspect speaks only French and Arabic and claims he was taking the illicit substances to Chad Republic before he was intercepted in Jalingo.

Investigations have however shown that he is a major supplier of illicit drugs to Boko Haram insurgents.

At the point of interdiction, the drugs, which he bought from Onitsha in Anambra state, were concealed inside new ladies’ handbags and shoes.

In a related development, operatives of the anti-drug law enforcement agency have raided drug joints in Warri Street, Kaduna, where 29.5 grammes of cocaine and heroin were recovered along with 456 grammes of rophynol tablets.

Two peddlers: Suleiman Yusuf and Abubakar Abdullahi were arrested during the sting operation.
