Prison Officers Nab Drug Peddler with Indian Hemp

Men of the Special Intelligence Squad of the Controller General of Prisons, Ogun State Command on 27th November, 2017 arrested a drug peddler while attempting to smuggle weed suspected to be India hemp into Old Abeokuta prison, Ibara , Ogun State. 

Following a tip off, a male suspect, Matthew Olusi was nabbed at the gate lodge with the substance concealed in his cloth and pant.

He has been handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for further investigation and subsequent prosecution.

Recall that on 25th October, 2017 a female suspect, Fatima Balogun was arrested with a mobile phone by the same Intelligence Squad in her attempt to smuggle the gadget into the prison.

Prohibited articles constitute danger to staff members and prisoners alike even as they remain inimical to discipline, reformation and rehabilitation strategy of the NPS. 

The CP Ogun State Command, Abolade Benson appeals to the general public to identify with the commitment of the NPS in eradicating drug abuse and other vices in and around prison formations in the  state. 

Friends and visitors  to prison facilities where prisoners are kept should therefore desist from smuggling prohibited items capable of compromising security into the prison yard as the authority will not hesitate to take decisive action against violators.
