According to him, his command has convicted thirty-one within the last one year.

Obiefule said, “Since the early ‘90s, Nigeria has experienced an up scourge in drug trafficking and abuse. Those involved are only interested in the proceeds from the illicit business.

“As regards prosecution, 31 convictions were recorded while 17 dealers were cancelled in the year in review. Our men have also discovered a cannabis farm in Ndokwa West, covering over 100 hectares of land which was destroyed.”
