A Federal High Court in Kano presided over by Justice S.A. Amobeda has sentenced a notorious drug trafficker, Muhammad Sambo, to 10 years imprisonment.

Sambo was among seven drug traffickers arrested by the Kano State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency in October.

A statement made available to journalists by the command’s Public Relations Officer, Sadiq Maigatari, on Monday, said Sambo was convicted and sentenced to a 10-year jail term.

Maigatari said the conviction was led by the state Commander, Abubakar Ahmad.

He said the NDLEA commander has been relentless in his efforts to rid the state of illicit drug activities, adding that the successful prosecution sends a clear message to all those involved in the illegal trade and transportation of cannabis and other illicit substances that Kano is not a base for them.

The statement read, “Sambo, whose operation involved transporting large quantities of cannabis sativa from Ondo and other Southern states to the Nort, was apprehended on November 11, 2020.

“NDLEA officers on patrol along the Kano-Zaria Road became suspicious and stopped a Honda Accord that initially refused to stop. After a pursuit, the suspect was arrested in the Hotoro area of Kano State.

“Subsequent investigations led to the discovery of 201kg of dried leaves suspected to be cannabis sativa in Sambo’s vehicle. The suspect’s real identity and his residence in Lokogoma, Abuja, were later confirmed.

“Laboratory tests on the substance confirmed it as cannabis sativa, solidifying the case against Sambo. The convict was found guilty of trafficking in cannabis sativa, a violation of the NDLEA Act.”….CONTINUE READING>>>>>>
