Informing the public about the development, it was revealed that a 20 year old hair stylist, one Josephine Odunu, and a dispatch rider, one Edesemi Ikporo, age 30 years old were apprehended by the operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, for selling and distributing an illicit drug package inside chin-chin to sell to school students and at social events in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State Capital. 

Luck ran out of the two people who were apprehended by the NDLEA Officers while on patrol around Opolo area of Yenagoa recently, when they intercepted the motorcycle dispatch rider, Edesemi, and recovered 200 grams of chin-chin produced with cannabis sativa, at the time he was on a mission to deliver the items to a buyer.

A swift follow up operation led to the arrest of the hairdresser, Josephine, who distributed the drugged chin-chin from the salon where she works in Kpansia area of Yenagoa.

A search of the salon also led to the recovery of 3.00 kilograms bringing the total weight of the illicit substance seized from the duo to 3.2kg.

Investigations revealed that they distributed the chin-chin often laced with cannabis and tramadol to students and at birthday parties.

While Edesemi handles the delivery to buyers, Josephine is a major distributor to a wanted suspect who produces the drugged chin-chin.

In the same vein, NDLEA operatives in Adamawa State on Wednesday, March 13, arrested two wanted suspects: Ajim Samuel (aka Boss), 30, and Davidson John Joshua (aka Dantala), 36, while on their way from Onitsha, Anambra State, where they had gone to buy a consignment of tramadol containing 14, 428 pills of the opioid which they tucked in the body compartments of their black Honda Civic car marked YLA 623 SL.

They were nabbed along Numan-Jalingo road.

Also recovered from them were 21grams of cannabis and monetary exhibits totalling N19,280.

In Osun State, commercial bus driver, Ogunleye Adegoke, 49, was arrested along Gbongan-Ibadan road after NDLEA operatives discovered 2,000 capsules of tramadol, 60 tablets of rohypnol and 10 bottles of codeine syrup concealed in the spare tyre compartment of his vehicle.

While a total of 343,000 pills of opioids were seized by NDLEA officers from a suspect, Lawan Abubakar, 33, in Azare town, Katagum, Bauchi State on Friday, March 15, same day the Nigerian Army transferred a suspect, Muhammadu Rabi’u, 37, with 64,000 pills of tramadol recovered from him to the Bauchi State command of NDLEA.

At least, 24kg of cannabis was seized from the driver of a transport company, Ikechukwu Obialo, at Sagamu Interchange, Ogun State by NDLEA operatives on Wednesday 13th March, while in Kano, two suspects: Ali Amadu, 27, and Adamu Hassan, 33, were nabbed with a total of 125.3kg cannabis; 3,400 pills of tramadol; and 30 bottles of codeine syrup.

They were arrested on Monday 11th March at Gadar Tamburawa area, and Friday, March 15, at Tsamiya Babba, Hotoro respectively.

While 118 kilograms of cannabis were recovered from a warehouse in Masaka area of Nasarawa State on Saturday, March 16, NDLEA operatives in Edo State on Thursday, March 14, arrested a suspect, Kole Samuel, 50, with 75kg of same psychoactive substance at market area, Otuo, Owan East local government areas.

Same day, operatives raided the Oloma-Okpe forest in Akoko Edo local government area, where they destroyed 3,944.2075 kilograms of cannabis on 1.577683 hectares of farmland.

With the same vigour, the various commands of the agency across the country continued the War Against Drug Abuse, WADA, advocacy campaign in the past week.

Some of them include: WADA sensitisation lecture for students and teachers of Government Day Secondary School, Michika, Adamawa; students and staff of Nana Aisha Secondary School, Damaturu, Yobe; students of Dee Unique International School, Abesan, Ipaja, Lagos and students and staff of Purple Crown Secondary School, Uwani, Enugu as well as a WADA advocacy visit to the paramount ruler of Alesa -Eleme kingdom, Emperor JD Nkpe 11, Rivers state.

While commending the officers and men of the Bayelsa, Adamawa, Osun, Bauchi, Nasarawa, Edo, Kano, and Ogun commands of the agency for their outstanding feats in the past week, Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) equally applauded their counterparts in all the commands across the country for intensifying their WADA advocacy lectures thus creating a fair balance between their drug supply reduction and drug demand reduction efforts.
