“We uprooted 46 kilogrammes of cannabis on the farm.

“This is a dangerous trend indicating a shift of Kebbi from being a drug consuming state to gradually being a drug-producing state via cultivation.

“We will nip the development in the bud before it spreads,” he said.

While speaking further, Odaudu recalled that the agency had on July 24, 2018, arrested a 55-year-old native doctor, Arage Rikici, who also owned an Indian hemp farm at Kukin village in Fakai Local Government Area of the state.

The NDLEA commander went ahead to urge communities in the state on the need to contact relevant authorities on citing cannabis Sativa plants, especially in their domain.
