NDLEA Officials

Thirteen (13) suspects have been arraigned before a Federal High Court sitting in Awka for allegedly being  in possession of various quantities of cannabis sativa, popularly known as marijuana, by the Anambra State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

The arraigned suspects, four of whom pleaded not guilty of the crime, were said to be apprehended with the illegal substance at different locations in the state.

The presiding judge, Justice Nicholas Nweibo, ordered that two of the suspects be counseled by the NDLEA and released because of the small quantity  recovered from them which is less than ten milligrams – of the substance found in their possession, while some others were granted bail with the sum of two million Naira and two sureties of like sum, one of whom must be a civil servant not below grade level eight, while the other must have evidence of tax payment for the past three years.
