Photos: Prison Officials Arrest Woman Who Tried To Smuggle Hemp Into The Prison Yards
A certain Miss Ijeoma Franca pictured above has been nabbed while trying to smuggle Indian hemp into the Medium Security Prisons, Kuje, Abuja.
Spokesperson of the FCT Prison Command, Humphrey Chukwuedo, via a statement made available to newsmen said Franca concealed the hard drugs in a carton of biscuit. The drugs were discovered as she was being searched by the prison officials.
Upon interrogation, Franca said she was asked by a man whose name she gave as Daniel to deliver the substance to his brother, Daniel Amechi, who is an inmate in the prison.
“During the interrogation, she claimed that one Mr Daniel had engaged her to take some package to his brother, Mr Miracle Amechi, who is an inmate in Kuje prisons and the package includes a carton of spicy biscuit, rolls of milk and milo, shirts and N2,500 and that she was ignorant of the real content of the carton of spicy biscuit,” the statement read
She has since been handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for further action.
