Sisters arrested for attempting to smuggle drugs into prison

Two sisters have been arrested by Officers of the Kuje Medium Security Prison in the Federal Capital Territory for attempting to smuggle substances suspected to be cannabis and Tramadol into the prison premises.

The prime suspect, identified as Miss Blessing Chinwuba, allegedly concealed the prohibited items in a carton of neatly packed noodles, which she wanted to take into the prison.

She was arrested by vigilant officers at the prison’s gate before she could pass the items to an inmate, John Ifeanyichukwu.

According to the statement by the FCT Prisons Service Command spokesman, Humphrey Chukwuedo, the prime suspect, who feigned ignorance of the contents of her illegal cargo during interrogation, claimed that the consignment was given to her by her younger sister, Victoria.

Victoria, while corroborating her sibling’s claims, also said she was unaware of the contents of the consignment, which she said she merely collected from a courier service provider.


The two suspects have been handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for further investigation and possible prosecution.
