Buhari said, “I deeply appreciate the work that you have put into the eradication of the drug menace. It gladdens my heart as I continue to follow the successes achieved under your leadership.

“You have demonstrated over and again that choosing you to lead this fight against wicked merchants of death whose sole aim is to endanger and truncate the future of our youth is a very good choice. Please keep up the good work.”

At a meeting later with members of his delegation, the president said: “Buba Marwa is doing well. Two tonnes of cocaine, that’s a haul.”

Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily had reported that the FCT police command discovered an Indian hemp farm in Abuja and arrested its owner.
