NDLEA Arrests Physically Challenged Lady For Drug Trafficking

A 35-year-old physically challenged lady, Kasarachi Onumaraju, has been arrested by the National Drug Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Imo State.

The spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi who made this known in a statement on Sunday in Abuja said that Kasarachi was arrested on May 29.

He said the suspect hid under her condition to sell drugs in the Umudumaonu community, Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo.

In the same vein, efforts by drug cartels to export four kilograms of methamphetamine concealed in nylon rolls to New Zealand were also frustrated by anti-narcotic officers attached to a courier company in Lagos.

Babafemi said the operatives also blocked different quantities of cannabis Sativa and Tramadol hidden in soles of slippers from being shipped to Oman through the same firm.

Also, no fewer than 335,820 tablets of Tramadol, Exol 5, Diazepam and Rohypnol, and 400 bottles of codeine syrup concealed in bags of vegetables have been intercepted in Abuja.

This, he said, was in a hummer passenger bus coming from Enugu on May 30.

According to him, the bus driver, Augustine James, 35, is currently helping with the investigation.

“In Imo state, 1,111kg of cannabis Sativa heading to the Orlu forest, which has become a fortress for non-state actors, was intercepted on May 26,” he said.

Babafemi added that NDLEA chairman, Buba Marwa, commended operatives of Lagos, FCT and Imo commands of the agency for sustaining the heat on drug cartels.
