The Anambra State Command of the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has arrested four suspects, one female and three males for drug business in the state.

He said the raid which was a sting operation would be a continuous one in the state to reduce the incidences of drugs in the state.

He urged members of the public to provide necessary information to the agency to assist in curbing the menace of drugs because its negative effect outweighed whatever gains.

“Please give necessary information to the command, as regards drug activities in your communities,” Odigie concluded.
