The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency paraded two sisters and the spouse of one of them before newsmen in Katsina on Tuesday for being in possession of six kilograms of Indian hemp.
The narcotics agency’s commander in Katsina State, Mohammed Bashir, told newsmen that one of the women, Rabi Musa, 45, was arrested for being in possession of three kilograms of Indian hemp.
He said Rabi was assisting her husband, now at large, to sell the illicit drug in connivance with her sister, Zainab Musa and her husband.
He said Zainab and her husband were also arrested for being in possession of another three kilograms of Indian hemp.
Bashir said the arrest of Rabi led to the arrest of the two other suspects and assured that her fleeing husband would soon be arrested.
The three suspects already arrested would be prosecuted, he assured.
He blamed rampant divorce cases in Katsina State on drug abuse and called on parents to take drug integrity tests of their would-be sons-in-law seriously.
