The suspects involved, the Commissioner said, were 12 male and one female, and of those, two were non-Gambians and 11 Gambians.

Meanwhile, the commissioner advised Gambians from all walks of life, especially young people, to desist from drug dealings while urging for collaboration in the fight against drug trafficking and possession in the country.
