A joint operation between the troops of 21 Armored Brigade of the Nigerian Army and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has successfully intercepted a large consignment of illicit substances destined for Boko Haram terrorists in Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.

Intelligence sources informed Zagazola Makama that acting on intelligence, the joint team launched a swift and decisive operation to disrupt the supply of illicit substances to the terrorist groups. The operation carried out following a tip-off, resulted in the recovery of 163 bags of the substance, equivalent to 2.5 tonnes, in a warehouse in Konduga.

The suspected illicit substances, known as “Goom” or “Akusukura,” are deadly psychoactive substances that pose a serious threat to public health and challenge drug policy. These substances, available in both liquid and powdered forms, are used by individuals seeking to increase their psychological or nervous activity, essentially to get high.

The recovered items were handed over to the NDLEA team leader, and the area was cordoned off by the military. This operation highlights the effectiveness of interagency collaboration and the commitment of the military and NDLEA to keeping Nigeria safe.
