Police have destroyed 69.07 kilograms of narcotic drug exhibits worth approximately Shs 1.7 billion at the police barracks in Nsambya.
The exercise comes at a time when the country is grappling with a rise in Ugandans engaging in the transportation of narcotics across the border.
The acting commissioner Anti-Narcotics, Zarugaba Tinka, who presided over the exercise, said the destroyed exhibits were seized in various operations in 2019/20.
He said persons that were involved in drug trafficking were taken to court, convicted and paid a fine.
Zarugaba said these traffickers keep on changing the tactics every day after realizing that Entebbe Airport has become a risky area to use.
