Man remanded in Ibadan for cannabis dealing

A Federal High Court in Ibadan has remanded Tesleem Bolaji in the Agodi Correctional Centre for allegedly dealing in 1.1 kg of Cannabis Sativa.

The presiding judge, Justice Ekerete Akpan, issued the order after Bolaji pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of unlawful dealing in narcotics brought against him. 

Justice Akpan adjourned the case to June 17 for the presentation of facts.

Earlier, Ann Balogun, counsel for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Oyo State Command, informed the court that the defendant committed the crime on March 6 in Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Nigeria.

She added that the offence contravened section 11(C ) of the NDLEA Act Cap N30 Law of the Federation 2004.
