Policemen reject N4m bribe, arrest drug peddlers in Lagos

Officers of Area K, Marogbo of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested one Esther Obiekezie for drug peddling alongside two others who attempted to bribe the police with N4 million for her release.

The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

The statement read, “The Inspector-General of Police,  Kayode Egbetokun, has commended the officer in charge of the Police Tactical Team attached to Area K, Marogbo, Lagos State Command, SP Rilwan Kasumu, and team, for rejecting N4m bribe while investigating a case of drug peddling and unlawful possession of ammunition.

“The team had arrested one Esther Newman Obiekezie, f, 42 years, aka Candy, of No 6, Mojirade Street, Ilogbo Lagos, on February 6, 2024, at her base where she sells drugs called ICE, and recovered a large quantity of the substance and some AK47 live ammunition from her.

“In the cause of the investigation, the duo of Akete Esther, f, 43, and Oke Okebalam, m, 49 years, of Ajamgbadi Lagos, came to the station in Ijanikin to solicit for the release of the drug peddler, Esther, and offered N4m and pleaded that the police should stop disrupting the illegal business (drug peddling) of Esther, henceforth.

“The police officer who frowned at the offer siezed the cash and marked it exhibit and arrested the duo for further investigation and prosecution.”

On Sunday operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency intercepted large consignments of Ghanaian Loud smuggled into Lagos with a total weight of 14, 524.8Kg and arrested a 66-year-old Nasiru Ojomu, who works with wanted Akala, Mushin-based drug baron, Suleiman Jimoh.
