NDLEA boss denies plans to legalize cannabis cultivation

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Adamawa State Command, said that it has seized 200.7 kilogrammes of substance suspected to be Indian hemp in the state.

Mr Yakubu Kibo, the state commander of the agency, made this revelation during an interview with NAN in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.

According to him, one Alhaji Ali Lafiya, and wife, Aisha, were arrested for being in possession of what the agency suspected to be Indian hemp.

“About 2 am on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, following an intelligence report, men of a Special Squad of the NDLEA stormed the house of one Alhaji Ali Lafiya at Anguwar Waji in Lafia town.

“A total of 200.7kg of substance believed to be Indian hemp was seized.
