“It was conducted in conjunction with the officer-in-charge of custodial centres/stations in the Command, including the Enugu Custodial Centre.

“The operation led to the arrest of a member of staff, Osmond Ifeoma, at the Enugu Custodial Centre as he tried to smuggle some substances suspected to be Indian hemp into the centre.

“He was tried and handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for prosecution as the command has zero tolerance for any act of trafficking.

“The said date, March 14, 2022, was a Monday when all vehicular movements and activities are usually grounded in the southeast. How then did the truck transit on that date?

“It was a combined team of the Controller and that of the Officer-in-Charge of Enugu Custodial Centre that arrested the suspect, Ifeoma.

“The accusation by Ifeoma that it was the officer-in-charge of the custodial centre that leads the cartel smuggling Indian hemp and alcohol to inmates is an unsellable defence.’’Jamb Result
