Femi Babafemi, NDLEA spokesperson, said in a statement on Sunday that Mohammed was arrested with 3.032 kg of cannabis sativa at a motor park in Lagos.

He said the student of petroleum engineering admitted that the bag he was carrying contained the illegal drugs but said it was given to him by an acquaintance.

The statement read: “A 27-year-old final year Petroleum Engineering student of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi, Bauchi State, Ali Mohammed has been arrested with 3.032kg of cannabis sativa at a motor park in Iddo, Lagos.

“Under interrogation, Ali who hails from Nguru, Yobe State but brought up in Lagos claimed that while on his way to the motor park in Iddo, from Obalende where he lives, he met an acquaintance, Ahmed who upon learning that he was travelling back to ATBU, Bauchi via Kano implored him (the suspect) to help deliver a travel bag containing the seized 3.032kg of cannabis sativa to one Ugo who lives in Sabon Gari, Kano.
