The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA revealed it conducted a raid on a lounge in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State, targeting a night party organised for the abuse of illicit substances.
The Agency revealed the operation resulted in the arrest of some organisers who were found in possession of drug exhibits.
Additionally, the NDLEA recovered over two tons of illicit substances in coordinated operations across Lagos, Ogun, Edo, Ekiti, Anambra, Ondo, and Kogi.
This was made known in a statement signed by the Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, shared on the agency’s Facebook handle on Sunday, 26th of November, 2023.
The statement in part said,
“Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA on Saturday 25th November raided a lounge in Osogbo, the Osun state capital where a night party organized for illicit substance abuse was going to hold and arrested some of the organisers who were found with drug exhibits.
“The raid followed credible intelligence that some persons were going to hold a night party tagged Unholy Alliance for Stoners and Drunkards where different types of illicit substances were going to be sold and consumed by patrons. Soon after the organisers began to gather at Berrymist Lounge located in the Ofatedo area of Osogbo to start the party, NDLEA operatives swooped on them, arrested them and recovered illicit substances of abuse and drug paraphernalia from them. Those arrested include: Ikotu Omolayo, 25; Fola Olabode, 30, and Akorede Adunni Ajibola, 22. The management of the Lounge has also been invited for further investigation.
“This comes on the heels of an earlier raid on Thursday, November 23 at Area 5 forest reserve, Ile-Ife where operatives recovered 156kgs of cannabis sativa.
“Meanwhile, operatives in Ogun state on Friday 24th November arrested two suspects: Adamu Ibrahim and Nura Sani at Ileke trailer garage, along Lagos-Ibadan expressway, where 859 kilograms of cannabis sativa concealed among bags of sugar in a truck for onward transportation to Mokwa, Niger State.
