Bogota: Colombian security officials have arrested the country's most wanted drug trafficker.

Dairo Antonio Úsuga, better known as Otoniel, was seized after a joint operation by the army, air force and police on Saturday, reports BBC.

The government had offered a $800,000 (£582,000) reward for information about his whereabouts, while the US placed a $5m bounty on his head, reported the British media.

Country's President  Iván Duque also confirmed the development on Twitter.

"This is the biggest blow against drug trafficking in our country this century," he was quoted as saying by BBC.
