Drug cartel leader arrested, large consignment of drugs seized

Chief Superintendent Ibrahim Sori Tunkara, Commander of the Narcotics Division, and his men have just dismantled a major drug cartel responsible for distributing narcotics in several consumer networks.

In support of other initiatives, the fight against drug trafficking has continued and intensified since the arrival of Police Chief Commissioner Ibrahim Sori Tunkara at the head of the Narcotics Division, according to police sources, in support of other initiatives.

Thus, finding the suspect, on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, around 11 am, the intervention team, initiated by Commander Tunkara, weaved their web to trap his hand in the bag. While he was in the middle of an operation to supply his clients at the Gikoroni-Para bus station, the narcotics team of the narcotics brigade broke into the scene and managed to capture him. He was with his accomplice, who, unfortunately, managed to escape.

As for the loot, this kind of operation requires the allocation of large resources to the units responsible for the fight against drugs, since it is obvious that the suspect in question is a real heavyweight in the drug trade, having repeatedly escaped to his pursuers. .

After the investigators, he was presented to the prosecutor’s office, which issued a warrant on him. Now he contemplates his fate between the four walls of the Central Prison (MCA).
