Imo State Police Command paraded Nnamuka Uchenna, a suspected drug seller who is allegedly selling illicit drugs to members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

He was apprehended alongside Augustine Ete and Chinedu Ukaegbulam.

After a search of his home in Umuaka, Njaba local government area of Imo State, Uchenna was caught with suspected cocaine worth N150 million.

According to a police source, the culprits were captured after persistent information gathering led to the arrest of one Obinna Ohaji, who posed as a driver in pursuit of passengers in a Nissan Caravan bus.

 

According to the source, a substantial amount of cocaine was discovered on the bus after a search.

 

The driver, who admitted that the cocaine was provided to him to transport to a lady in Elele, Rivers State, led the police to the Imo-Rivers state border, where the recipient, a 17-year-old girl, confessed to be working with the ESN in Rivers State.

 

The suspects were possibly the ones who distributed the drugs to various terror camps in the state, according to Imo police spokesman, Michael Abattam, who also noted that investigations are ongoing to trace the source of the hard drugs into the state and to apprehend other members of the syndicate.

 

The police had earlier accused IPOB of sponsoring the recent attacks on security agents in the South East region. A joint operation of security agencies is going on in the region to curb the illegal activities of IPOB.
