Akure high chief arrested by NDLEA.

The NDLEA in Osun has arrested an Akure high chief for allegedly being in possession of eight bags of Indian  hemp.
The agency’s  acting Commander, Mr Samuel Gadzama, told the News Agency of  Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Osogbo that the 52-year-old suspect  was arrested  with his cousin  on Sept. 23 in Iwo town.
``The surveillance team of the command was monitoring the movement of the two suspects in a Honda saloon car  marked BC 57 FST  coming  from Ilesa  before it was finally stopped at Iwo.
``The team initially wanted to trace them to where they were going to supply the eight bags of Indian hemp weighing 45.45 kg, but swooped on them when the suspects wanted to escape after  discovering  that the officers were tracing them,’’ Gadzama said.
He said that investigation was still going on, adding that the suspects would be charged to court at the appropriate time.
