The National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency on Monday said it has arrested a father and his son over alleged possession of 2.65 kilogrammes of cannabis in Jigawa.

The NDLEA state Commandant, Malam Ibrahim Abdu told the News Agency of Nigeria in Dutse that the suspects were arrested in Ringim Local Government area of the state.

He said that the father had been arrested and convicted three times on similar offences but only spent few months in prison.

Abdu also said that the suspects were among the top three on the `NDLEA Most Wanted List’ in the state.
According to the commandant, the two suspects had earlier resisted arrest and engaged officers of the agency in physical combat on June 26.

The commandant, however, said that the suspects were arrested at their hide out after a week of intensive surveillance, adding that they would soon be charged to court.

“We await the decision of the High Court on the person that had been brought before it four times, this man was convicted by the court before, but only spent few months in prison.”

Abdu urged the general public to support the agency to rid the state of drug dealers.

“The public must assist the agency by giving us useful information on the operation of these criminals, because they live among them.”
