He said that nine of the suspects had been charged to court while investigation was ongoing on the remaining suspects.

The commander lauded the state government for its support in the area of logistics to the command.

in spite of that, he appealed to Gov. Darius Ishaku to provide accommodation for the staff, a rehabilitation centre and a bigger store for the command.

He said, “Currently, we take those being rehabilitated to Bauchi State while some of our seized drugs are stored in Yola because our store in Jalingo is too small to accommodate seized drugs.”
