NDLEA Arrests Nursing Mother 3 Weeks After Bail On Same Offence

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA), have arrested a nursing mother just three weeks after she was granted bail on the same drug offence.

Abdulmumini Maikasuwa.

The nursing mother, Mrs. Rashidat Adebayo, 38, from Kwara State, was granted administrative bail following her arrest for dealing in illicit drugs.

Sadly, NDLEA operatives, again, arrested her in Offa with the same assorted drugs such as Tramadol, Swinol, Diazepam and Pentazocine injection ampules she was earlier arrested with.

In a statement by spokesman of NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, obtained by Stonix News on Sunday, the anti-drug agency has also foiled an attempt by a syndicate to steal about N2.7 billion from the Nigerian economy by pushing into circulation fake $4.7 million cash.

The operatives had, in the early hours of Friday 18th February 2022, intercepted a consignment sent from Lagos to Abuja at Abaji area of the Federal Capital Territory.

A controlled delivery of the parcelled counterfeit US dollars, totalling $4, 760, 000.00, led to the arrest of a principal suspect, 52-year-old Abdulmumini Maikasuwa.

The seizure followed intelligence received by the FCT Command of the agency, detailing the movement of the cash and the vehicle conveying it.

Meanwhile, Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), has directed that both the cash and the suspect in custody be transferred to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) for further investigations.
