Yahaya Mohammed, a 22-year-old, has said security operatives in Bauchi arrested him twice for alleged drug trafficking and illegal possession of firearms in less than two years, WikkiTimes can report.
Narrating how operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) caught him, Mohammed said the security operatives besieged his room while he was still asleep in the morning.
“They arrested me while I was sleeping in my apartment. They demanded the drugs I sell. I told them that I had hidden them on the farm.
“I described the location of the drugs and the security men picked it up,” he said.
Mohammed, a father of three and still expecting another child, said he smuggled narcotic drugs from the southern part of the country. “I am a driver conveying passengers and goods to states in the south. Each time I went there, I brought some of the drugs I traded,” he explained.
He added, “Sometimes I received supply from a local market in Kari, Misau local government.”
Mohammed sells drugs such as Fara, which can be literarily translated as ‘white’; D5 and Lara.
Mohammed sells all kinds of illegal drugs to youths in his native Giade, the headquarters of Giade local government area of Bauchi State despite being formerly a member of Late Malam Ali Kwara Security Group, a local vigilante outfit notorious for fighting armed robbery across the country.
The security operatives found two knives and a Dane gun in his apartment, which argued was used as both a member of the Late Malam Ali Kwara team and a hunter.
Confirming the arrest, Bauchi State NSCDC Commandant, Mr Ilelaboye Oyejide said the suspect will be handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for proper prosecution.
