A medical doctor, Jane Chioma Ofoma, has been caught by the long arm of the law for selling drugged cookies and biscuits.
She is already cooling her heels in the cell of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
Ofoma was arrested in Auchi, Edo State for selling drugged cookies and biscuits through an online catering service — Omachis Kitchen.
Confirming the arrest, Mr Femi Babafemi, the NDLEA’s Director of Media and Advocacy said in a statement given to Persecondnews on Tuesday that the suspect was arrested with at least 94 pieces of cookies produced with Cannabis Sativa (hemp).
“Following intelligence and surveillance, narcotic officers of the Edo State Command of the Agency on Saturday 19th June 2021, stormed her operational base at 1 winners way, Auchi, where she was arrested and at least 94 pieces of cookies produced with cannabis Sativa were recovered.
“Chioma, 26, who is a graduate of medicine from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka recently completed her horsemanship at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital.
“She has confessed to baking the cookies with a skunk in her statement while under interrogation,” he said.
Meanwhile, a 30-year-old Emmanuel Ehiramhen, of No. 10, Egan St., Ekpoma in Edo has been nabbed by NDLEA for dealing in crack cocaine.
Persecondnews recalls that NDLEA had recorded a breakthrough with the arrest of a serving officer of a law enforcement agency for selling assorted illicit drugs to students of a federal university and cultists in Ogun state.
Babafemi said that the drug dealer who served in the Lagos state Command of the security agency was arrested on Wednesday, June 15.
After days of surveillance on his wife’s shop used as his sales point in Camp area of Abeokuta, the officer was arrested.
According to Babafemi, one of his salesmen, a motorcycle rider was trailed to the location at about 8pm and arrested with six pinches of Colorado weighing 1.17grams.
“This was before the principal suspect, who has been on the Agency’s watch list, was nabbed with different illicit drugs.”
He gave the breakdown of the substances as: codeine -17 bottles; Cannabis -22.26 grams; tramadol 230 tablets -98grams; 61 tablets of flunitrazepam -23.72grams; 113 tablets of molly -48.16grams and sex drops -43.92grams.
“After the arrest of the two suspects, some student union officials of the institution blocked the NDLEA team with their official vehicle.
“The narcotic agents, however, restrained themselves and after hours of standoff succeeded in moving the suspects to custody,” he said.
