The Kano Road and Traffic Agency (KAROTA), has confiscated 28 mega cartons of illicit drugs worth N30m in Kano.

Karota under the leadership of Baffa Babba Dan’agundi, on Wednesday, raided a store along Airport Road by Murtala Muhammad Way where the drugs are kept after being imported into the state without NAFDAC Registration.

According to a statement issued to newsmen by the Agency’s Public Relations Officer, Nabilusi Abubakar Kofar Na’isa, the seizure came after intelligence gathering by men of the Agency that uncertified and highly abused male enhancement drugs were smuggled to the state and stored by some expatriates.
