Lagos – A Federal High Court in Lagos has granted leave to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to arraign a 19-year- old man, Gabby Alade,  with trafficking 1g of Cocaine and 9.1g of Heroine

The defendant will be arraigned before Justice Maureen Onyetenu on March 25, on  two counts of drug trafficking.

In count one, the teenager was accused of dealing in 9.1g of Heroine, which offence he was alleged to have committed on Dec. 4, 2018, at a place called Marssy in Lagos Island.

In count two, he was again alleged to have dealt in 1g of Cocaine, which offence he committed on the same date and place.
