A 23-year-old Polytechnic graduate, Mr Lucky Abel has been nabbed with crack cocaine, skunk cannabis and Rohypnol by men of the Edo State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
NDLEA Edo State commander, Mr Buba Wakawa who disclosed this yesterday explained that skunk-sativa is a strain of marijuana that creates a skunk-like smell, noting that the suspect who is from Ogbagigbo local government area of Benue State was arrested at Okada, headquarters of Ovia North-East of the state.
He said: “The arrest was based on information received on the illegal activities of the suspect in the state. Drug exhibits recovered from the suspect according to Buba include eight wraps of crack cocaine weighing 24 grammes, 53 wraps of skunk cannabis weighing 250 grammes and 45 tablets of Rohypnol.”
Buba urged the youths and members of the public to shun drug trafficking and fulfil their dreams and aspirations in life. Drug trafficking and abuse will cut short your enviable future. This suspect ought to be preparing to further his studies or engage in any meaningful work but that can only take place after he had been cleared of this criminal charge.
The suspect confessed that he has been smuggling drugs in the last year. “I have been selling drugs for the past year. I attended Okada Grammar School Okada and graduated in 2010. Thereafter I studied Business Administration at Edo State Polytechnic, Usen in 2013. After my diploma course, l wanted a job to sustain myself but there was none. That was how a friend introduced me to drug trafficking. In order to get more profit, l sell different types of drugs like cocaine, cannabis and Rohypnol. I get my supply from new road in Ovia South West of Edo State.”
The NDLEA commander warned drug dealers to quit the illegal business or be prepared for arrest and prosecution, noting that the young suspect will soon be charged to court after investigation.
