Femi Babafemi, Director, Media and Advocacy, NDLEA Headquarters, Abuja, disclosed the development in a statement on Sunday.

According to him, the NDLEA officers on patrol around the Opolo area of Yenagoa had on Sunday, March 10 intercepted the motorcycle dispatch rider, Edesemi, and recovered 200grams of chin-chin produced with cannabis sativa, which he was on a mission to deliver to a buyer.

“A swift follow-up operation led to the arrest of the hairdresser, Josephine, who distributed the drugged chin-chin from the salon where she works in the Kpansia area of Yenagoa.

“A search of the salon also led to the recovery of 3.00 kilograms bringing the total weight of the illicit substance seized from the duo to 3.2kg.

“Investigations reveal that they distribute the chin-chin often laced with cannabis and tramadol to students and at birthday parties,” Babafemi said.

While Edesemi handles the delivery to buyers, Josephine is a major distributor to a wanted suspect who produces the drugged chin-chin
