A 28-year-old Imo State University graduate,
Chiamobi Henry, on Thursday appeared before
a Federal High Court in Jos for allegedly
possessing illegal drugs and other banned
substances.
Also arraigned with Henry were Bala Abdul,
33; Emmanuel Samuel, 21, as well as Sunday
Williams, 30.
Among the drugs tendered by the National Drug
Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) Prosecuting
Counsel, Sarah Oketola, were psychotropic
substances like diazepam, tramadol and Indian
Hemp.
The offence is punishable under Section 19 of
the NDLEA Act, Cap N30, Laws of the Federation
of Nigeria, 2004 (as amended).
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that
the suspects, who appeared before Justice Lewis
Alagoa, pleaded guilty to the charge and prayed
for leniency.
Alagoa, after listening to both the prosecution
and the defendants in the matter, ordered that
the suspects be remanded in the custody of the
NDLEA.
He, then, adjourned further hearing in the case
to Nov. 20. (NAN)
