The soldier was trailed to the area by men of Operation Yaki who arrested him while smoking the substance Sunday afternoon.
POST correspondent, who witnessed the drama, reports that when the
police officers arrived the ‘smoking zone’ the soldier, who was clad in
his full military regalia tried to run but was overpowered by the
heavily armed officers who arrested and bundled him into their van.
One Zakari, a roadside recharge card vendor, said that the soldier has been a regular guest in the area.
“He comes here everyday to smoke”.
“The worst thing is that each time he comes here, he foments trouble.
“If you dare tell to him, he will beat the hell out of you,” Zakari lamented.
