National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has arrested a notorious major supplier of illicit drugs in Abia state.
The suspect identified as Chibuike Apolos was on Wednesday, April 21, arrested during an early morning raid of his hideout at Mbausi in Isialangwa North area of the state.
The arrest was confirmed in a statement released by Femi Babafemi, spokesperson of the Agency.
He said Apolos has been on the wanted list of the Abia state Command of the NDLEA since February following the arrest of one Chima Ukeleonu, the suspect behind the video that went viral in January 2021, showing a young man hawking illicit drugs on the street. As a result, 38-year-old Apolos was put on the wanted list.
Babafemi said that following APolos’s arrest in the early hours of Wednesday, the Abia state government has already marked his house that serves as his hideout for demolition.
“The Command has been on his trail since February this year. Fortunately we got a tip-off that he just received some quantities of cannabis from Edo state. Notwithstanding the tense security situation in the south east especially Abia state, the Command still embarked on the operations which culminated in the arrest of one Chibuike Apolos with ten (10) bags of cannabis weighing 100kg, 1.6 grammes of cocaine, 1 gramme of heroin and 5 grammes of methamphetamine.
“The suspect is one of the major suppliers of illicit drugs in Abia State especially in the Isialangwa communities. The State governor has been notified and his building has been marked for demolition.”
