Written by anitaadims

The Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested a medical doctor who goes by the name Jane Chioma Ofoma, in Auchi, Edo, for selling browniees – drugged cookies and biscuits.

Its Director, Media and Advocacy, Mr Femi Babafemi, said in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, that Chioma sold the drugged cookies and biscuits through an online catering service, Omachi’s kitchen.

Babafemi said the arrest followed intelligence and surveillance where narcotic officers of the Edo Command of the agency on Saturday 19th June, stormed her operational base at 1 Winners Way, Auchi.

This, he said, led to her arrest and at least 94 pieces of cookies produced with cannabis sativa were recovered from the suspect.

According to him, Chioma, 26, who is a graduate of medicine from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, recently completed her housemanship at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital.

“She has confessed to baking the cookies with skunk in her statement while under interrogation,” he said.

In the same vein, Babafemi said a 30-year-old Emmanuel Ehiramhen, of No. 10 Egan Street Ekpoma, has been arrested by officers of the Edo Command of the agency for dealing in crack cocaine.
