Odinme, who pleaded not guilty to the charge, was not represented by a counsel.

The Prosecutor, Mr Jeremiah Aernan, prayed the court for the accused to be remanded in custody, and a trial date issued.

The trial Judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, in a short ruling, adjourned the case to Jan. 19 and ordered the accused to be remanded in custody.

The prosecutor alleged that Odinme committed the offence on May 3.

He said that Odinme was arrested on May 3 at the Lagos-Badagry highway and that he was carrying 2.1kg of restricted narcotics, known as Cannabis Sativa or hemp.

The prosecutor said that hemp was categorised as a psychotropic substance bearing similar characteristics as Heroine LSD.

He said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 11 (c) of the NDLEA Act, Cap No.30, Laws of the Federation, 2004.
