The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police command has arrested six suspected drug peddlers and recovered hard drugs and other prohibited substances.

The police commissioner, CP Sunday Babaji, who disclosed this while parading the suspects at the command’s headquarters on Wednesday, gave the names of the suspects as Suleiman Abdulrahman Bello, Suleiman Shamsudeen, Emeka Offor, Tanko Abdullahi and Luka Ishaku.

He said the suspects were arrested in a chain of tactical sweep operations by the command’s anti-narcotics unit at different black spots within the territory.

He said the suspects were in possession of large quantities of dry leaves suspected to be cannabis sativa of different variants like Arizona, crack cocaine and bottles of codeine syrup.

He said investigation had been intensified to unravel other groundbreaking revelations that could lead to more arrests, even as he noted that the suspects would be handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

The police commissioner, while frowning at the rate of moral decadence and crime, called on the residents to report any suspicious person to the police through its emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883.
