A 35-year-old Chadian, Adama Uomar Issa, who sells narcotics to the Boko Haram insurgents has been arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
Babafemi also revealed that 15.7Kg of Exol.5; 100,050 France CAF and N61, 000 were seized form the suspect during his arrest.
He quoted the Commander, Taraba State Command of the NDLEA, Suleiman Jadi, as saying that 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,” Babafemi said.
