A notorious drug supplier in Taraba State, Lami Mai Rigima has been arrested by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), months after being on their wanted list.

Director Media and Advocacy, NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, at National Headquarters, Abuja, made this known in a statement issued on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old queen of the drug world, who is popular for supplying traffickers with drugs came under the anti-narcotic agency’s searchlight when several traffickers were arrested in the state in 2021 and early this year fingered her as their supplier.

He further said the manhunt for Lami paid off on Monday, April 4 when operatives tracked her to her hideout in Iware village in Ardo Kola's local government area of Taraba.

” The search for Lami began in October 2021 following the arrest, prosecution and conviction of a drug dealer, Abdullahi Madaki, 50. After serving his brief jail sentence, Madaki returned to the illicit trade with Lami still as his supplier. He was however re-arrested on 13th February 2022 while another trafficker, Jamilu Hassan, 20, who is also a member of Lami’s supply chain, was nabbed on 24th Feb.”

He however said in Adamawa, operatives arrested a cross border drug trafficker, Emeka Okiru, aged 40, with 32,700 tablets of Tramadol 225mg under the brand name: Royal and Tramaking.

He stated that the suspect was arrested at Garden city, Mubi, Mubi North local government area on Tuesday, April 5, while preparing to supply his customers who came from the Republic of Cameroon.

The drugs were reportedly concealed in cartons of paintbrushes.
