NDLEA Arrests Pregnant Woman, Others over N3.2m Fake Notes

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has recently made significant arrests and seizures in a series of coordinated raids across multiple states, highlighting the agency’s dedication to combating drug-related crimes in the country.

The operation led to the arrest of three suspects, including an eight-month pregnant woman, at the Jabi park in Abuja. The arrests were a result of a follow-up operation after the seizure of N3.2 million in counterfeit cash in Lokoja, Kogi State.

Femi Babafemi, the NDLEA spokesperson, revealed the details of the operation on Sunday, stating that large quantities of narcotics were intercepted in separate incidents. In Lokoja, Aliyu Lawal was caught with 620 blocks of cannabis weighing 310kg, while Jama Obodo was intercepted with 10 sacks of cannabis weighing 98kg along the Okene-Lokoja-Abuja Expressway.

In Calabar, Cross River State, a 40-year-old widow, Mrs Theodora Ita, was arrested for producing and selling a deadly new psychoactive substance known as ‘Combine.’ Additionally, Godwin Samuel was apprehended with 39.4kg of cannabis sativa in Calabar.

Further operations in Kano, Imo, Ekiti, Edo, Ogun, and Ondo states resulted in the arrest of individuals involved in drug trafficking and distribution. In Kano, Sani Mohammed and Christopher Eze were caught in possession of 900,000 opioid pills, while a logistics truck carrying 230 blocks of cannabis sativa was intercepted in Imo State.

The NDLEA has also been conducting advocacy campaigns to curb drug abuse, including sensitization lectures for students, military personnel, and local communities.
