The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) arrested a 20-year-old woman, Ms. Josephine Odunu, in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state.

Ms. Odunu is accused of producing and selling drug-laced snack popular called “chin-chin” to students in the state.

The suspect was arrested alongside one Edesemi Ikporo, a 30-yeard-old dispatch rider, who the law enforcement agency accuses of being responsible for the distribution of the products.

In a statement, the spokesman for NDLEA, Mr. Femi Babafemi, said officers of the Agency on patrol around Opolo area of Yenagoa intercepted the motorcycle dispatch rider, Edesemi and recovered 200 grams of chin-chin produced with cannabis sativa, which he was on a mission to deliver to a buyer.

He said the arresting officers swung into action with a follow up operation that led to the arrest of the hairdresser, Josephine, who distributes the contaminated chin-chin from the salon where she works in Kpansia area of Yenagoa.

Babafemi explained further that a search of the salon also led to the recovery of 3.00kilograms bringing the total weight of the illicit substance seized from the duo to 3.2kg.

The NDLEA spokesperson said that investigations reveal that they distribute the chin-chin often laced with cannabis and tramadol to students and at birthday parties.
