NDLEA Nabs Notorious Drug Dealer In Plateau


The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, in Plateau on Tuesday arrested an alleged notorious  drug dealer operating in the state with 350.6 kilograms of psychotropic substances.

The NDLEA Commander in the state, Ngozi Madubuike, confirmed this in Jos  and said that the suspect, popularly known as Zuma, is an ex-convict, who was sentenced to three years in prison with an option of fine earlier in March this year.

According to Madubuike, the suspect is a major wholesale supplier of controlled drugs in Plateau State.



    “All the drugs in his possession are controlled drugs and he doesn’t have the qualification or licence to sell these controlled drugs,” she stated.

    Madubuike said  further that the accused had been charged to court and that the agency would press for his imprisonment to save the youths from his alleged nefarious activities.

    “This time around, we hope he will not be given an option of fine, because he is a second time offender. We want to ensure that he desists from this illicit drug activities which is ravaging the youths of the state,” she said.

    She called on the general public to support the NDLEA with useful information that would lead to the arrest and prosecution of more drug traffickers operating in the state.
