June 12th, 2019

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), on Tuesday took two Hilux truck and a Toyota Hiace bus loaded with 201 sacks of cannabis sativa as exhibits to the Fed­eral High Court Abuja.

The 201 sacks of cannabis were brought before Justice Evelyn Maha by the NDLEA as exhibits in a count charge filed against one Michael Monday and Abdullahi Ili­yasu.

Monday,33, and Iliyasu, 25, both male with no skill or handiwork, are being pros­ecuted by the NDLEA for aiding in the transportation of cannabis sativa, an illicit drug weighing 2,058.7 kg.

The culprit whom both defendants aided in trans­porting the 201 sacks of can­nabis sativa, one Ugo, was still at large.

Out of the 201 sacks of cannabis carefully concealed in a white sack and packed inside a black nylon, three sacks were tendered inside the court room and the rest, inside the vehicles.

Justice Maha personally went outside together with the court registry, prosecu­tors and defence counsels for inspection and confirmation of the remaining number of sacks of cannabis in the ve­hicles.
