The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Kano State, said it has arrested no fewer than 85 suspected drug dealers and users in a club within the state.

The Command's Acting Public Relations Officer, ASN Sadiq Muhammad Maigatari in a statement said the persons were arrested following a raid it conducted on Bubles, a club in Kano that had reportedly been turned into a drug joint.

He said the raid was carried out in response to community complaints about drug-related activities at the club.

Maigatari said the Commander, Abubakar Idris Ahmad deployed intelligent officers to conduct surveillance on the club and that which led to the arrest.

"During the raid, the gallant officers were able to apprehend 55 males and 30 females. Some of the suspects attempted to evade arrest by jumping over the fence while others tried to hide inside freezers.

"However, the JTF was able to nab them all," Maigatari said.

He noted that the arrest of the suspects is a significant victory for the NDLEA in its fight against drug-related activities in Kano State.

"The agency has been working tirelessly to curb drug trafficking and abuse, which have become a major problem in the state and the country as a whole.

"It is important to note that drug abuse and trafficking have serious negative consequences, not only on the individuals involved but also on society as a whole."

He noted that the arrested suspects were under investigation to identify the drug dealers among them who will definitely face the wrath of the law and the drug users to be referred to the appropriate unit for counseling and brief intervention.

The Command's spokesperson however sounded a word of warning from the Commander that there will be no hiding place for drug dealers in the state and urged members of the public to report drug-related activities to the agency.
