Operatives of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad, under the Lagos Police Command, 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 was disclosed in 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.
Further investigations by the police led to the arrest of one Ifeanyi Erem, 60, who also confessed to having been supplying the substance to Aghalise to sell around the Ilupeju end of the Gbagada-Oshodi Expressway, Lagos.
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 were arrested in any part of the state.
