The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Anambra has declared a man popularly called ``Uche Baron’’ in Onitsha main market wanted for illicit drug dealing.
NDLEA’s Commander in the state, Mr. Sule Momodu told newsmen in Awka on Tuesday that the agency on Aug. 20 raided the suspect’s warehouse in the market and recovered cannabis weighing 109.800kg.
He said that the suspect who hailed from Ndoni in Rivers escaped and has been on the run since the raid.
Momodu, however, said that the baron’s brother-in-law, from Okwe in Onuimo Local Government Area of Imo, who also deals in the business had been arrested.
He appealed for public information for the arrest of the wanted suspect, pointing out that the agency had enough evidence to prosecute him in court.
“He will serve as a deterrent to others. We have enough evidence to secure his prosecution, to get jail term.”
Momodu commended Governor Willie Obiano’s encouragement and support to the agency in its effort to rid the state of criminal elements.
“We will work hard to help the state government achieve this objective.” (NAN)
