Operatives of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad, during a patrol on the Gbagada-Oshodi Expressway on Wednesday, October 18, arrested a hard drug vendor, Victor Aghalise, 27, while peddling to motorists a substance suspected to be Arizona.
This is according to a post on the official X handle of the RRS on Thursday.
According to RRS, 93 wraps of Arizona were retrieved from Aghalise’s bag.
It was learned that further investigations by the police led to the arrest of one Ifeanyi Erem, 60, who also confessed to have been supplying the substance to Aghalise to sell around the Ilupeju end of the Gbagada-Oshodi Expressway, Lagos.
However, seven wraps of Arizona were also recovered from Erem’s pocket.
The RRS Commander, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, directed that the suspects be charged to court immediately.
He also warned hard drug peddlers and motorists patronizing them that they would be prosecuted once they are arrested in any part of the state.
