The Kabala Police Division executed a successful raid resulting in the confiscation of substantial quantities of narcotic drugs, including kush and tramadol

The Crime Officer at Kabala Divisional Headquarters, Detective Assistant Superintendent (D/ASP) Mohamed Hindolo Feika said the bust took place in the centre of the township.

The police said a team of police officers acting on intelligence raided kiosks around the Clock Tower and later found large quantities of kush and tramadol.

They said some of their officers had to go undercover in order to be precise.

Four suspects including three men and a woman are currently in police custody assisting with investigation.

Police later revealed that the operation led to the discovery of three hundred and seventy-four (374) wraps of kush and thirty-eight (38) packets of tramadol. The drugs are said to in police custody.

There has been a surge of raids across Sierra Leone lately due to the proliferation of kush. The drug is reported to be taking its toll on many youths in the country.

In response, some MPs have called on the Youth Minister, Mohamed Orman Bangura to produce a policy paper to the House with regards the narcotic drug.

Kush, otherwise known as K2, is a drug produced by the mixing of several harmful chemicals. One instance has revealed that some producers even use human remains as ingredient.

The drug has left some fatalities and mental degradation in addicts.
