How FRSC nabbed accident victim trying claim concealed Indian hemp


A suspected drug dealer, Chidi Ebere, has been arrested by the men of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, with 20 packs of substance neatly sealed in a carton.

The substance is suspected to be indian hemp

Ebere was nabbed while trying to retrieve the substance at the Ikare office of the FRSC claiming he was involved in an earlier accident at Oba Akoko while in a Lagos-bound vehicle.

The driver of the ill-fated vehicle was said to have been rushed to Iwaro-Oka General Hospital for treatment.

The Unit Commander of the FRSC Ikare-Akoko, Jimoh Basiru, said Ebere was asked to show evidence of ownership and declare what was inside the carton.

Ebere, who was then forced to open the carton, attempted to escape afterwards.

But operatives immediately apprehended him.

According to Basiru, Ebere in his confessional statement, said he was selling spare parts in Abuja and was financially down.

He explained that he contacted a friend in Lagos who told him to bring the drugs to him to get money.

Ebere, who claimed he was a first offender, has been handed over to officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
