A MACUATA chief has applauded the work of his people in assisting police with the drug raid.

Tui Nadogo Ratu Ilisaniti Malodali described the co-operation of his people as a positive move towards curbing crime.

"The raid was done near Nakelikoso in my district and as a chief, I am proud of what my people did," he said.

"I have always emphasised the need to work with the police to prevent crime from happening and to weed it out from our community.

"The village headmen have also been reminded to carry out their duties in keeping a lookout for illegal activities."

Ratu Ilisaniti said the villagers had always been reminded during their meetings not to get involved in criminal activities.

"We set up programs for villagers to keep them occupied and have some form of income-generating projects.

"The farm is a major scheme we are working on because it brings back good money to our people."

Northern Police Commander SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said his team uprooted 10 plants believed to be marijuana.

He said his team had been working with the villagers.

"We have our people on the ground who have been helping us with information and this kind of info helps us a lot," SSP Lutunacaucau said.

"We are grateful to the people for their support," SSP Lutunacaucau said.
