A fake pharmacist and drug dealer, Nura Aliyu, has been arrested in possession of six cartons equivalent to 300 bottles of codeine syrup and about 142 empty packs sold in Katsina State.
The state’s Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Wakili,
while parading the suspect, said he was arrested along Senator Abba Ali
Road by Mohd Dikko Stadium.
Aliyu said it was destined to
happen, but he regretted his actions. His words: “I regret my actions. I
have stopped the business some three years back. It was only yesterday
that I went back to it and I was arrested.
We give it out
wholesale in my shop. I have a chemist in Tsohon Tasha. People come
inside the town to buy from my shop. They are mostly men. The empty
packs are the ones they bought and went with it.”
