Two sisters and the spouse of one of them were on Tuesday paraded before newsmen in Katsina by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for alleged possession of six kilograms of Indian hemp.
Mohammed Bashir, the narcotics agency’s commander in Katsina State, explained to newsmen that one of the women, Rabi Musa, 45, was apprehended in possession of three kilograms of Indian hemp.
He explained that Rabi was assisting her husband, now at large, to sell the illicit drug in connivance with her sister, Zainab Musa and her husband.
For being in possession of another three kilograms of Indian hemp, he said that Zainab and her husband were also arrested for being in possession of another three kilograms of Indian hemp.
The arrest of Rabi, according to him, led to the arrest of the two other suspects, assuring that her fleeing husband would soon be arrested, and that the three suspects already arrested would be prosecuted.
He called on parents to take drug integrity tests of their would-be sons-in-law seriously, blaming the rampant divorce cases in Katsina State on drug abuse.
He suggested that before giving their daughters out in marriage, rather than getting swayed by wealth, parents must demand drug-free certificates from would-be sons-in-law.
