38years old Abuja based businesswoman, Onyinye Nwoke is not having it cool with operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency ,NDLEA over the planting of cannabis in her garden for ” medicinal purposes “.
She is now cooling off her heels with the anti narcotics agency after its operatives stormed Onyinye’s residence at House 56,Aldenco Estate Galadimawa,Abuja,where fresh plants of Cannabis were uprooted.
Onyinye insisted she did no wrong as the plants ” were part of herbs being used to ease off body pains”. Since planting of Cannabis has not been legalised in Nigeria, the NDLEA said she has a case to answer.
Spokesman of NDLEA,Femi Babafemi confirmed that 800 grams of cannabis seeds were also recovered from Onyinye.
