Last week, the DCI intimated that criminals are becoming braver and finding new ways to transport drugs within and outside the country.
According to Ms Janet Shako, the Deputy Director at the Anti narcotic unit, investigations had revealed that the proceeds of the sale of such drugs had direct links with funding of terror activities within this region.
She, however, reiterated that they were alert and on the look out to ensure the criminals are nabbed and necessary action taken against them.
