June 2022 and June 2023, using different types of hard drugs.

He said that over 100 of the suspects are facing trials in the courts.

“I’m appealing with the state government to assist us with logistics such as operational vehicles,” he said.

Governor Mohammed however, charged the Agency to increase its awareness campaign to tame the menace of drug abuse and trafficking
