According to the prosecution the drugs were found in the possession of the convict at the time of his arrest.

The NDLEA insisted that the offence violated the provisions of Section 11(c) of the NDLEA Act, CAP N30 Laws of the Federation, 2004.

The convict was arraigned before the court on September 27 and he pleaded guilty to the charge on that day.

In his judgment, Justice Aneke found the defendant guilty of the offence and convicted him accordingly.
