Polytechnic Graduate Arrested For Peddling Drugs

A 23-year-old polytechnic graduate, Lucky Abel, has been arrested by the personnel of the Edo State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for alleged drug peddling.

The suspect, who hails from Benue State, was arrested at Okada in the Ovia North-East Local Government Area of the state.

Drugs allegedly found in his possession included crack cocaine, skunk cannabis and rohypnol.

Skunk is a hybrid sativa strain of marijuana that creates a skunk-like smell.


The Commander of the NDLEA in Edo State, Buba Wakawa, confirmed the suspect’s arrest.

He stated, “The arrest was based on information received on the illegal activities of the suspect in the state.

“Drug exhibits recovered from the suspect include eight wraps of crack cocaine weighing 24 grams, 53 wraps of skunk cannabis weighing 250 grams and 45 tablets of rohypnol.”

Wakawa urged the youth and members of the public to shun drug trafficking and fulfil their dreams and aspirations in life.

“Drug trafficking and abuse will cut short your enviable future. This suspect ought to be preparing to further his studies or engage in a meaningful work but that can only take place after he has been cleared of this criminal charge,” he added.

The suspect said in his statement that he had been smuggling drugs for the past one year.

Abel stated, “I have been selling drugs for the past one year. I attended Okada Grammar School, Okada, and graduated in 2010. Thereafter, I studied Business Administration at the Edo State Polytechnic, Usen, in 2013.

“After my diploma course, l wanted a job to sustain myself but there was none. That was how a friend introduced me to drug trafficking. In order to get more profit, l sell different types of drugs like cocaine, cannabis and rohypnol. I get my supply from New Road in the Ovia South-West Local Government Area of Edo State.”

The NDLEA commander, who said the suspect would be charged to court after investigation, warned drug dealers to quit the illegal business or be prepared for arrest and prosecution.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
