“This is to show that rigorous search and arrest of drug dealers can also yield to other sources of crimes and arrest of such criminals.

“Although an investigation is ongoing, we could not determine exactly what he intended to do with the 244 PVCs.

“I am sure the resident electoral commissioner to whom I have transferred these PVCs to, will definitely explain in due course,” he said.
