A team of policemen from the prestigious Kano State Police Command has successfully demolished a known drug cartel operating in the vicinity of Kwanar Dangora, which is located within the state’s Kiru Local Government Area.

On July 18, 2023, around 8:00 p.m., a group of devoted Policemen doing Highway Surveillance Patrol duty near Kwanar Dangora made a noteworthy interception. Their attention was drawn to a Golf series 3 model car, which they felt was being driven recklessly.

The motorist was pursued as they attempted to flee arrest in a quick response from the crew. However, during the pursuit, the driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to tumble.

The motorist in question was doggedly chased and eventually caught by authorities, in a spectacular turn of events. During the arrest, a startling find was made: seven bundles of dried leaves, thought to be Indian hemp, were recovered.
