Katsina: Court convicts 2 notorious drug dealers


A Federal High Court in Katsina State has convicted two notorious drug dealers sued by the Katsina State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)

This was contained in a statement issued to newsmen by Superintendent of Narcotics SN, Sunday Ogbadu, the spokesman of the NDLEA command in Katsina.

According to Ogbadu, before their arrest, the two notorious drug dealers convicted by the Federal High Court in Katsina were the major distributors of controlled drugs within the state.

One of the convicts identified as Saifullahi Lawal 30, was sentenced to eight years imprisonment while his counterpart identified as Murtala Danlami 35, was sentenced to seven years imprisonment.

In light of the above, the NDLEA Commander of Narcotics in the state, Mohammed Bashir, has sent a strong note of warning to drug dealers in the state to desist from the illicit business or face the wrath of law as the operatives of the command will work tirelessly to free the state from their activities.

The statement reads in part:

“This is to bring to the notice of the general public the conviction of two notorious drug dealers, tried and convicted by the Federal High Court, Katsina.

“The said drug dealers include Saifullahi Lawal, 30 years old, convicted and sentenced to eight years imprisonment on April, 4.
