The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency at the weekend arrested a 20-year-old undergraduate at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos for importing 1.745kg of dry weeds that tested positive for cannabis.

According to a statement by the agency’s Head, Public Affairs, Ofoyeju Mitchell, the suspect, Udiomeh Ita, was found in possession of the drug during the inward screening of passengers on an Africa World Airlines flight from Accra, Ghana.

NDLEA Lagos Airport commander, Mr. Hamza Umar, said the suspect hid the drug inside his bag containing personal effects.

“An undergraduate student was found in possession of two parcels of cannabis weighing 1.745kg during routine search of passengers. The drug was hidden inside his bag containing personal effects. He was immediately arrested and the case is under investigation” Hamza said.

In his confessional statement, the suspect, who reportedly gained admission into the faculty of Management Sciences at the Regent University, said he used the money for his tuition fees in purchasing the drug found on him.

He reportedly said, “I spent my school fees on cell phone, smoking hemp and attending night clubs. I bought a cell phone for 107,000 naira and spent my school fees recklessly.

“I thought I could make enough profit from the sale of cannabis to offset the deficit in my tuition. I bought each parcel of hemp for 220 Ghanaian cedi. I did not know what came over me and I am afraid to go to my parents. My father is a retiree.”

Ita hails from Akwa-Ibom State but grew up in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Chairman of the NDLEA Ahmadu Giade has described the action of the undergraduate as shameful, saying students must understand that drug use is inimical to academic pursuit.
