Spokesman of the command, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa confirmed the arrest in a statement issued to DAILY POST.
He said the suspect, who is from Edo State, was arrested along Kwanar Dangora in Kiru Local Government Area, Kaduna-Kano border, with over 250 parcels of marijuana.
According to him “A Highway Patrol team in Kano State, while on surveillance patrol along Kwanar Dangora, Kiru LGA, Kaduna-Kano border, intercepted the suspect driving a dark green Honda Hennessy Motor Vehicle containing Two Hundred and Fifty (250) parcels of Dried Leaves suspected to be Indian Hemp, valued One Million, Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N1,750,000:00) packed inside the Motor Vehicle boot”
Kiyawa said on investigation, the suspect confessed that he transported the Indian Hemp from Edo State en-route Kano State, with the intent to deliver it to one Alhaji.
