The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) said its operatives have arrested a notorious female drug dealer who has been on its watch list.
The Rivers State command of the federal law enforcement agency said it arrested the suspect, Celina Ekeke, in Obunku in the Oyigbo Local Government Area of the state.
The suspect, according to NDLEA, has been using her deformed legs to disguise and sell the illicit drugs without suspicion for months.
Naija News learned that 24 sacks of cannabis Sativa weighing 231.2kg were recovered from the suspect.
Speaking on the arrest of the suspect, the NDLEA spokesman in the state, Emmanuel Ogbumgbada, said; “On Wednesday 29th June 2022, at about 0200 hours, Operatives of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency in Etche Area Command of Rivers State Command carried out a search operation at Obunku community of Oyigbo LGA in Rivers State and arrested one Celina Ekeke ‘female’ a notorious drug dealer with 24 sacks of cannabis Sativa weighing 231.2kg.
“She has been on the watch list of the agency for some time now as she uses her deformed legs to disguise and sell illicit drugs.
“She is presently undergoing investigation at the Rivers State Command headquarters.
“The State Commander, Comdr Ahmed Mamuda, has restated our earlier warning to all drug dealers to desist from it because we will surely fish them out, particularly as the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA Brig.

NDLEA, in the statement released on Thursday in Port Harcourt, urged the general public to help with credible information that will enable them to sanitize the society of hard drugs.
”We call on drug users to seek help now before it is too late,” the statement added.
