Officials of the Nigerian Prisons Service (NPS), Ikoyi, Lagos, have foiled another attempt by a two-man gang to smuggle Indian hemp into Ikoyi Prison.

The incident occurred a week ago, barely one month after officials of the prison foiled an attempt by a housewife, Adeyemi Oyinkansola, whose husband is on remand at the Ikoyi Prison, to smuggle about 930 grams of a substance suspected to be Indian hemp concealed in four big tomato tins, into the facility.

The Nation reports that the suspects, Babatunde Mustapha and Abdullahi Ismail, were caught while attempting to smuggle Indian hemp into the prisons during visiting hours last week.

It was gathered that the suspects, on arrival, requested to see an inmate, who unknown to them, had been moved from the facility to another one in Lagos.

When told that the inmate had been moved, the suspects reportedly became confused, as they were not aware of the transfer.

Quote
“Their mood changed immediately they heard that the inmate had been moved. In fact, the way they reacted to the transfer made those monitoring the closed-circuit television (CCTV) and other officials to become suspicious.

“Consequently, our boss, Deputy Controller of Prisons (DCP) Tolu Ogunsakin, ordered them to be detained. He said a search should be conducted on them”,
a source said.

It was gathered that when subjected to a search, a black cellophane bag in which the Indian hemp was concealed, was found on them.

The Nation learnt that Ogunsakin immediately ordered their arrest and seized the substance.
