Nigerian drug enforcement officials, known as the NDLEA, arrested 24 suspects and seized over 7.6 tons of illegal drugs in a series of raids across eight states. This included the capture of a man supplying drugs to insurgents and a pregnant woman involved in trafficking.

The biggest haul came in Nasarawa state, where a truck carrying over 4 tons of cannabis was intercepted. Three suspects were arrested. In the capital Abuja, agents stopped two trucks carrying a combined 2.8 tons of cannabis, leading to the arrest of five individuals.
