The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Abia State Command, on Monday arrested a suspected hard drug dealer in Aba.

The Commander, NDLEA, Abia State Command, Mr. Bamidele Akingbade, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Onyebuchi was caught with 20.3 grams of cocaine, 27.5 grams of heroin and some wraps of cannabis.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 26-year-old Chinonso Onyebuchi from Enugu State, claimed to be an intra-city bus driver on the Ariaria-Faulks road route.

He said that the suspect was caught with over 100 small wraps of cocaine and heroin which he sells at N100 and N50, respectively.

The commander said that Onyebuchi will be charged to court this week but would appear before a judge at the end of their vacation.

“For us to process his trial, we have to file a charge now. The courts are open with the other officials but the judges are not there at the Federal High Courts because they are on vacation.

 

“So they are going to take the charge and we can now hold him in custody until the courts resumes. But as soon as the courts resume, he will be arraigned with 17 other drug suspects in Abia.

“We are going to use the services of the vacation judge in Port Harcourt to start their trial process and to remand them pending the resumption of the Federal High Courts.”

Onyebuchi said he was forced by hardship to return to selling hard drugs for an Aba-based drug courier named Agbo after quitting the business which took him to prison in 2008.

“I used to sell drugs but I left it since for a long time now. I have been arrested before and the person I was selling for left me to go to prison in 2008.

“When I was freed from prison in 2010, I left the business. I came here because last two months Agbo, a drug courier in Aba, called me to come to his place and sell market for him.

“So he said he will beat me up when he sees me and today he saw me with his henchmen along Ohanku road and they started beating me with matchets.

“I ate the money last two months and ran away. He was the one who called me to come and sell drugs for him.

“They came today and beat me and handed me over to the NDLEA. It is Agbo that sells the drugs.”

Agbo, who admitted taking the cannabis, had white foam in his mouth while talking with the NDLEA officers. (NAN)
