Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, have arrested a 38-year-old nursing mother for drug dealing three weeks after she was granted bail for same offence in Kwara state.
Director, Media & Advocacy of the agency, Femi Babafemi, in a statement on Sunday February 20, said the suspect, Mrs. Rashidat Adebayo, was granted administrative bail following her arrest for dealing in illicit drugs.
“Operatives have again arrested her in Offa with assorted drugs such as Tramadol, Swinol, Diazepam and Pentazocine injection ampules,” the statement read.
