A team of police detectives from the Kano Police Command‘s Bompai headquarters successfully raided a high-profile drug house located in Agwa Kudandan Nassarawa, Chikun Local Government Area, Kaduna State.

The operation, carried out with precision and coordination, led to the dismantling of a notorious drug cartel operating in both Kano and Kaduna.

Ladi Peter, the 47-year-old leader of the drug gang, was apprehended by the police at her residence during the raid.

Her arrest led to the arrest of two top gang members: Umar Saleh, 38, of Unguwan Dosa, Kaduna North Local Government Area, and Ahmad Naheed, 36, of Nassarawa Chikun, Kaduna State.

Sixty-one bags of dried leaves presumed to be Indian hemp, two sets of military uniforms, red berets, shin guards, and a boot were seized from them.

The previous operation and arrest that resulted in the capture of the three drug dealers were carried out in Kwanar Dangora, the border town and entry point into Kano from Kaduna that police identified as one of the hot spots.
