The Katsina State Police Command has apprehended one Bashir Raba Mohammed of Rijiyar Lemu Quarters, Kano State, who ferried illicit drugs and marijuana disguised as a military officer.

The command’s spokesman, DSP Gambo Isah, said in a statement that the suspect was arrested when he visited the Daura Central Police Station in full army camouflage on a motorcycle requesting for a police report in respect of lost particulars of the motorcycle.

He said the DPO became suspicious and made some checks on the suspect which revealed that Bashir Raba Mohammed was not a military personnel but an imposter.

When interrogated, the suspect confessed to have been a member of a drug syndicate, transporting marijuana from Kano to Daura on his motorbike using the uniform as a shield.
