Officers of the Nigeria Police Force and operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have engaged in a physical tussle over the arrest of a police Inspector’s wife allegedly caught with a bag of Cannabis Sativa and other illicit drugs.
According to SaharaReporters, the incident happened around 11am on Monday, October 16 inside A Division police station in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
Sources disclosed that the wife of the police inspector was arrested while distributing the marijuana from her husband’s car, an ash Volkswagen parked inside the station.
However, when the NDLEA operatives moved to whisk her away with the vehicle, some police personnel challenged them and it led to a fight.
A source said; “A police Inspector’s wife was arrested by NDLEA yesterday inside A division in Kogi. Bags of cannabis sativa, an ash Volkswagen belonging to her husband were recovered. However, her husband’s police colleagues clashed with the NDLEA officers until their boss came in”.
Another source said; “It happened at A division police post. The husband parked the car in front his office. His wife was arrested while distributing the cannabis sativa. However, some police officers tried to stop the NDLEA officers from carrying out their lawful duty until the situation was calmed by the Assistant Commissioner of Police heading the division.
“The woman and her husband’s car containing the bags of weeds and other illicit drugs were later taken to NDLEA office in Lokoja for further investigation. She has so far admitted to the act. The question is; who were her customers inside a police station?”
