Zamfara  -  The Zamfara Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has impounded 3 500 kilogrammes of Cannabis Satiba, known as Indian hemp in Gusau.

Bala Muhammad, the State Commander, told newsmen in Gusau on Monday that officials of the agency apprehended a vehicle loaded with the substance following a tip off.

According to him, the vehicle which was loaded with the prohibited substance was on its way to Talata Mafara in the state from Ondo.

The commander, who did not give the number of the vehicle because of ongoing investigation, said the driver had been arrested while search is on to apprehend the owner of the goods, who had absconded.

Muhammad explained that the substance was concealed in cartons of fish and covered with other items in the vehicle  to hide its identity.
