“Apart from various quantities of Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Molly, and Loud seized from her home and drug bunks; a pump action gun, 15 cartridges, documents, two cars, mobile phones, drug paraphernalia such as sodium bicarbonate and polythene wrappings were also recovered for further investigation.”

Five of her staff “that cook, cut, package and distribute the drugs were” also arrested in her house and “other parts of the town during the raids by Strike Force officers of NDLEA supported by the military.”

The NDLEA noted that she had been “under surveillance for weeks after her identification as a major distributor of illicit drugs in the South South state.”
