NDLEA Declares Abuja Drug Lord Wanted

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has raided the warehouse of a former convict and drug lord in Abuja, Ibrahim Momoh, declaring him wanted.

Ibrahim Momoh, alias ‘Ibrahim Bendel’, escaped from prison custody to return to his criminal trade where the operatives recovered 81 jumbo bags of cannabis weighing 1,278kgs.

This was disclosed by the spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi, in Abuja on Sunday.

According to him, though the fleeing drug dealer is still at large and is wanted by the agency, his warehouse keeper, 55-year-old Ghanaian, Richard Forson Gordon was arrested.

Ibrahim Momoh was first arrested on 27th November 2014 with the same substance weighing 385.1kgs, prosecuted, convicted and sentenced to seven and a half years in prison on April 22, 2020, but escaped from jail after three months.

Meanwhile, the NDLEA has also on December 3, arrested a 29-year-old pregnant woman, Kate Ibinabo, with 34.4kgs Cannabis Sativa in Okrika area of the state.

The Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), however, directed that she be granted administrative bail pending when she delivered her baby and thereafter return for her prosecution because, at the time of her arrest, she was in her ninth month of pregnancy.
