Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested a 22-year-old National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving member, Arnold Maniru, in Abuja for importing four kilograms of drugged candies from the United Kingdom.

This is as officers of the agency intercepted cookies laced with drugs going to United Arab Emirate, in Lagos State.
Spokesman of NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, said on Sunday in Abuja that the youth corps member serving with a government agency in Abuja was arrested on Saturday 28th August, 2021 following the interception of a consignment at the warehouse of a transport company.

A controlled delivery of the parcel, which contains the candies laced with Arizona, a strong variant of cannabis and some liquid, was subsequently carried out,” Babafemi said.
