No fewer than 60 persons are in the net over the use of prohibited drugs in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has said.

The anti-drug government agency stated that the suspects comprise 25 males and 35 females. They were said to have been arrested at a drug party in Abuja.

According to it, the suspects were nabbed Friday night following credible intelligence about the drug party organized by one Mr. Stanley Ikechukwu who was arrested at the venue.

These were disclosed in a statement signed by NDLEA spokesman, Mr. Femi Babafemi.

According to the statement which was obtained by Maritime Bits, the drug party dubbed “Go hard or Go Home. Pick Your Poison”, was held at an apartment situated in an estate called Sun City in Abuja.

“At least six of the suspects, Victoria Adoga; Hamza Yari; Joanne Essein Joy; Socchima Valentine; Jago Imole; and Charles Indobuibisi, were arrested with different quantities of ecstasy and cannabis.

“The Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brigadier General Mohammed Buba Marwa (retired) has directed that 20 of the suspects who tested negative to drug be released unconditionally, while 33 others who tested positive to illicit drugs were to be released on bail and will report at the FCT Command of the agency on Monday to begin treatment and counselling,” the statement added.
