Troops of the three division Nigerian army have intercepted and arrested some kingpins and foot soldiers of suppliers of boko haram terrorists with hard drugs and other stimulants between Depchi and Geidam, Geidam local government area in northern part of Yobe state today.
In a statement issued by the army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman, it was indicated that the arrested persons were also engaged in the supply of fuel in addition to hard drugs such as
cannabis, chloroform substance (aka madaran suck and die) and tramol, amongst others.
Sources involved in the counter insurgency effort told AIT that many of the terrorists’ recruits are drugged with hard substances, and often appear to be working under intoxication.
The arrest of these drug suppliers has reinforced that fact, more so as they have been making very useful statements.
