The Task Force Committee For The Arrest of Illegal Drugs and Drugs abuse in Katsina State has arrested one Muhammad Kofar Faru Daura and confiscated hard drugs, marijuana, cough syrups and other illegal drugs worth hundred of thousands on Naira.
The chairman of the committee Dr. Aminu Koguna who displayed the arrested person and his illegal possessions to news men also stated that the committee will continue to stop the illicit business in order to protect the social and religious moral of Katsina State citizens.
Dr Koguna also stated that similar operation has been done across the state and that so far a significant number of arrests has been made.
He also expressed dismay over the attitude of some elderly people and sometimes even married women involves themselves in such an unholy act.
He therefore promised to charge the arrested individuals to court and also urged the general public to be providing useful informations when ever they come across it.
In another development, Experienced coach Zachary Baraje, who left Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Plateau United last season, has disclosed that he is in talks with both Kano Pillars and Katsina United.
Speaking on his next destination, Baraje said: “Kano Pillars and I are still at the stage of courtship but nothing tangible has come out of our discussions yet. I have also been having preliminary talks with Katsina United.
“We are also yet to come to terms and concretize the arrangements, but whichever pulls through any moment from now is where I will be headed,” he further added.
Baraje impressively led Plateau United to safety last season having also led Akwa United to the Federation Cup title last year.
