Four Hemp Dealers Arrested In Lagos

Four Hemp Dealers Arrested In Lagos

Suspected hemp dealers.

The Lagos state police command has carried out a successful operation and arrested four suspected dealers with 18 sacks of Indian hemp.

The Punch reports that the policemen attached to the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) apprehended QuadriJimoh (23), Tajudeen Busari (33), Ukowa Udomma (34) and Yakubu Mudashiru (30).

Briefing journalists, Olatunji Disu, the RRS commander, revealed that the suspects were arrested after the police got a tip-off from Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

“The police acted after we received a tip-off from Governor Akinwunmi Ambode. We arrested a gang of narcotic specialists with 18 sacks of Indian hemp.

“The information we heard was that the dealers had also been terrorising the Oyingbo-Otto area before their arrest.

“With information from members of public, the work of the police will be made easier. We cannot do it all alone; we rely on hints from the people,” he said.

The RRS commander added that the suspects would be transferred to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). He called on people of the state to emulate the governor by providing the police with timely and effective information.

Meanwhile, two of the suspects, Jimoh and Busari, said that they were victims of circumstances, insisting they knew nothing about the hemp.

“My wife, who is six-months pregnant, called me to buy some prescribed medications for her. On my way to the pharmacy, I saw people running helter-skelter and I also ran with them. But I was arrested by the police,” Jimoh said.

“I was passing by when I saw people running for their lives. I also ran before the policemen intercepted me,” Busari added.

During the interrogation, two other suspects, Udomma and Mudashiru, said they were not dealers, adding that they only smoke hemp. They identified one Olumide as the dealer.
A week ago, operatives of NDLEA arrested six suspected drug traffickers at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, with substances that tested positive for drugs.
