A man who has been arrested and jailed twice for drug trafficking has been nabbed again for the same crime.
An unrepentant man who has served two previous terms in prison for drug trafficking, shocked officials of the Kano State sector of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), when he fell into their arms again.
The operatives were aghast that the 53-year-old Ejike Martins, could still go back to the same crime that sent him to jail twice, and could still be on his way to prison yet again.
Martins was apprehended with one ThankGod Obums, 35, also a former convict, as they attempted to smuggle dried weeds which tested positive for cannabis sativa, along Emir Road, Sabon Gari, Kano, stuffed in a Mercedes Benz car, marked AA809AJG.
The duo had 104 blocks of the drug weighing 66kgs.
The Head, Media and Publicity, of the drug bursting agency, Mitchel Ofoyeju, said investigation showed that the suspects had earlier been convicted for drug trafficking.
"Findings on Ejike Martins are particularly disturbing. Ejike travelled to Lagos in 1982 in search of job opportunities after his primary education.
He was first arrested by the NDLEA for drug trafficking in 2005 on his way to Spain at the Lagos airport.
NDLEA charged him to court for attempting to export one kilogramme of cocaine to Spain. He was found guilty and sentenced to two and half years imprisonment.
He was yet again apprehended at the Kano airport with 4kg of cocaine.
Martins was sentenced to five years jail term for smuggling 4kg of cocaine found on him at the Kano airport."
