A lady’s attempt to smuggle Indian hemp into Ikoyi Prisons, has been foiled by officials of the Nigerian Prisons Services (NPS).
Newsmen reports that the woman, whose husband is detained at the facility, was said to have attempted to capitalise on humanitarian service providers and inmates’ relations’ visit to bring in the illicit drug.
The suspect concealed the substance, which weighed about 930 grammes, in four big tomato tins. Investigation has begun, to determine the culpability of her husband in the matter.
“When the tomato tins inside her package were opened, we found Indian hemp, a phone and a sim card,” a source told our correspondent.
