NDLEA re-arrests 56-year-old man who just served a jail term for drugs

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Niger Command, has arrested one suspect with 1,072 kg of substances suspected to be marijuana in Mokwa Local Government Area of the state.

The NDLEA’s Commander in the state, Mrs Sylvia Egwunwoke, made this known in Minna on Saturday.

Egwunwoke said the 56-year-old suspect is from Bangi village in Mariga Local Government Area.

Egwunwoke disclosed that the suspect, who had just finished his jailed term on Oct. 8 for similar offence, was arrested following through intelligence report that the suspect was transporting the prohibited weeds to Sokoto state.


“(The suspect) was arrested by the command last year along Kontagora with 64kg of Indian Hemp and was convicted by a court and served one-year jail term.

”The command will, however, not relent in curbing the activities of drug peddlers in the state and the nation at large,” she said.
