Aliyu was arrested along Senator Abba Ali Road by Mohd Dikko Stadium.

Just weeks after the Federal Government banned codeine, a fake pharmacist and drug dealer, Nura Aliyu, has been arrested in possession of six cartons of suspected codeine syrup and about 142 empty packs sold in Katsina State.

The state’s police spokesperson, DSP Gambo Isah, while parading the suspect, said he was arrested along Senator Abba Ali Road by Mohd Dikko Stadium.

Isah said Aliyu “was stopped and during police search, this quantum of syrup suspected to be codeine was recovered in his vehicle.”
