The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) detained a 35-year-old nursing mother for drug trafficking a week after she was released on bail for the same offense.

Recall that on Thursday, October 21st, Mariam Drissu was detained at the Agency’s Edo State Command headquarters while attempting to smuggle two cups of “Loud” cannabis weighing 13grams hidden under wraps of (akpu) into a cell for a suspect in detention.

“Barely a week after she was arrested and granted bail for attempting to smuggle drugs concealed in cassava flour meal called akpu into NDLEA cell for a suspect in custody, a nursing mother who claims to be a part-time 400-level student of International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of Benin, Mariam Adetilewa Dirisu has again been arrested for trafficking in 5kg skunk and 8.1grams of Molly,” Director, Media & Advocacy of the agency, Femi Babafemi, says in a statement on Sunday, October 31.

“The 35-year-old mother of a 2 month-old-baby was first arrested on 21st October by the Edo state Command of the Agency. Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) had on the same day directed that she be counselled and released immediately because of the young baby she was carrying

“Curiously, a controlled delivery operation carried out by operatives of the Delta state Command of the Agency on Saturday 30th October again led to the arrest of Mariam who had ordered for the drugs from Lagos even while still on bail for an earlier offence,” he added.

The statement also said that desperate efforts by drug cartels to export different quantities of Cocaine, Heroin, Methamphetamine and Cannabis to London, United Kingdom through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos have been scuttled by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
