The 19-year-old bandit was arrested by the NDLEA operatives on Thursday, August 17, 2023.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the NDLEA Director, Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, on Sunday, August 20.

Babafemi revealed that the suspect, who is on the wanted list of the police, has since been transferred to the Sokoto State Police Command for further investigation.

He added that the NDLEA operatives, in the early hours of Saturday, August 19, destroyed clusters of cannabis farms measuring about 3.49000 hectares (over 7.5 tons) at Mopatedo in Ifedayo Local Government Area of Osun State.


The NDLEA spokesperson disclosed that two suspects – Sunday Otogbo, 40, and Peter Andel Makra, 35 – were arrested inside the cannabis farms, saying an additional 30kg cannabis weeds and 16.9kg of cannabis seeds were also recovered from the farms.

Babafemi stated that three suspects – Ndubuisi Okorie, 44; Ebilima Emmanuel, 38, and Okechukwu Anthony Smart, 40 – were arrested in connection with the seizure of 168kg cannabis consignment from them after their vehicle was intercepted along the Owerri-Onitsha expressway, Imo State, on Saturday, August 19.

“Another shipment of controlled drugs containing 6,000 capsules of tramadol, 1,200 tablets of swinol, 155 bottles of codeine syrup and 20 tabs of Molly was equally seized on the same road on Sunday 13th August while a follow-up operation in Oyigbo area of Port Harcourt, Rivers State led to the arrest of the owner of the consignment, Remigius Ogechukwu, 33,” the NDLEA spokesman added.
