Isiolo County Commissioner Geoffrey Omoding who confirmed the arrest said an organised anti-trafficking police unit had formed to eraducate the drug trafficking syndicate.

He added most of the suspects ply routes in Kom and Yamicha to avoid security inspection.

The well trained group, he affirmed, will also take riffles dealings by some of the drug suspects.

He said all vehicles inclusive of government officials will be inspected in bid to make sure no drugs pass through their areas unnoticed.

“The drug traffickers should be aware that the government is in high levels before them and we will not sit back and relax unless the menace is fight off,” Mr Omoding said.

Together with County Police Commander Joseph Kigen alongside Criminal Investigations leader Betty Chepng’eno, the officer said police dogs will be used along this routes for quicker identification of cars with drugs.
