After been under serious surveillance for few weeks, suspected cannabis dealer Babatunde Busari was arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency with cannabis worth N3 million naira in street value.

Babatunde Busari thought it was easier to make money through selling drugs instead of wasting his precious time making little money working in a car wash.

The 30 years old drug dealing suspect was busted on Friday, February 19, in a raid conducted by the officials of the agency.

Spokesperson for the NDLEA, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, said the agency discovered 22 sacks of Indian hemp weighing 301.2kg and that the drug dealers were using one of the shops in a market at Mushin as warehouse for illicit storage of drugs.

The operation, which took place at about 3am, was part of strategies to reposition the anti-narcotic agency for optimum performance.

“Investigation revealed that the shop where the cannabis was found was always locked. The estimated street value of the seized cannabis is about N3m.” says Ofoyeju

It was further gathered that Babatunde Busari who hails from Ibadan, Oyo State, was caught in the act by the agency officials.

 “I used to work in a car wash until a friend introduced me to the cannabis trade. At the beginning, my daily average sale was N5,000.

“I took over the business when my friend travelled out of the state few months ago. It is so painful that I was arrested when I was beginning to enjoy the fruit of my labour.” Babatunde Busari lamented.

The suspect would soon be charged to court.
