Ten suspected online drug traffickers operating in Abuja have been arrested by the operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.

This was contained in a statement released on Sunday by NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi.

According to the spokesman, the agency arrested the suspects following their undercover operation during the week.

Among those arrested was one Ese Patrick, who was accused of running an illicit drug business on Instagram.

Babafemi said the 28-year-old was picked up alongside her boyfriend as they brought deliveries for undercover NDLEA operatives who had ordered the drugs online.

He said the agency subsequently raided Patrick’s residence and “confiscated 400 grams of Arizona weed”, which she allegedly uses in baking the brownies.

Peter Nkejika, another suspect, was also apprehended on May 24 after his despatch rider was picked up with “N510,000 worth of Loud”, a highly psychoactive variant of cannabis.

Also apprehended was one Dolapo Benjamin, said to be the owner of five motorcycles allegedly used in distributing the drugs.

In Gwagwalada, the NDLEA said it seized drugs weighing 105.5 kilograms in a luxury bus and arrested three persons in connection with the illicit substance.

Meanwhile, Babafemi said the agency also confiscated drugs that were being transported to New Zealand and the United Arab Emirate in Lagos.

“The agency has 445 grams of Methamphetamine going to New Zealand and concealed inside USB chargers and hair attachments, with another 450 grams of cannabis Sativa going to UAE and concealed inside local soap containers at a courier company in Lagos,” he said.

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
