Operatives of the National Drug Law and Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Osun State Command, have arrested a 40-year-old Kareem Alamu and his accomplice, Adeyemi Saheed, 33.

The duo, according to a statement by the Osun NDLEA Commander, Nnamdi W. Chidi, were arrested for possession of substances suspected to be narcotics.

The statement issued by the spokesperson, Charles Odigie, on Wednesday, also added that the anti-narcotic agency nabbed the duo separately on Monday, May 13, 2024.

The statement reads, “On Monday, May 13, 2024, a team of operatives led by SN Falore Ayoola, during motorised patrol along Ode-Omu/Osogbo Road, intercepted a commercial ash-coloured Toyota Avensis Wagon car with Reg No SMK 131 CX and recovered a consignment containing 9 block-like wraps of cannabis sativa, which weighed 4.7kg.

“The driver, Kazeem Alamu ‘M’ 40 years old, claimed it was a waybill meant to be delivered to someone in Osogbo.

“Further search of the vehicle led to the recovery of another consignment containing another 26.5gms of cannabis sativa and 6.5gms of cocaine.

“A follow-up operation was initiated and it led to the arrest of one Adeyemi Saheed ‘M’ 33 years, who came with an unregistered gold colored Toyota Corolla to collect the consignment containing 26.5gms of cannabis and 6.5gms of cocaine.

“Search on the Toyota Corolla he brought led to the recovery of 1.5gms of cocaine.”

Chidi, who revealed that Adeyemi Saheed is a major distributor of crack cocaine in the state, added that he will be arraigned in court soon.

He also commended the efforts of his officers and warned drug dealers and couriers to relocate from the state or risk getting arrested and prosecuted.
