Police destroy Indian hemp farms in Osun, arrest 4 suspects (Photo)

Osun State Police Command has destroyed a large expanse of Indian hemp farms at Agbongbon village in Irewole LGA of Osun state and arrested four suspects. According to a report made available to press men Friday, the Commissioner of Police Osun, CP Fimihan Adeoye, said that the operation of the officers was aimed at discontinuing the supply of Indian hemp in the area so as to prevent youths from smoking weeds and possibly curtail crime situations as a result.
The state’s Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Aminu K Koji, led the operation in which the Indian hemp farms were destroyed. The officers destroyed the hemps with herbicides while the dried ones that were ready for sale were burnt.
He said: 
“We have declared a total war against Indian hemp cultivation and supply in Osun State. This is necessary to prevent youths from getting the weeds to smoke and this strategy was designed to nip the crime in the bud.”
The DCP also revealed that four suspects, namely, Osasa Ansah, Saliu Koku, Musliu Ibrahim and Salimu Koku were arrested in connection with the crime and that they would face the law and serve as deterrent to others.
“Most criminals get energised when they take cannabis and that is why we are trying to cut the supply of India hemp to Osun and other neighbouring states so that they won’t get Indian hemp to smoke. This would surely reduce the crime rate and our youths would be normal and behave well. Those planting the Indian hemps are trying to make money at the expense of other people and destroying the lives of many youths. They are also affecting the economy negatively because they don’t allow the economy trees to stay in the areas where they weeds are planted," he said.

But President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday dismissed the recount and said that "the election is over."
