Court jails man for selling Indian hemp


KAIMA – A Magistrate Court in Kaiama, Kwara State on Thursday sentenced one Sofianu Ahmed to one year imprisonment for selling Indian hemp.

The Magistrate, Ibrahim Dasuki, held that the convict should serve the jail term without an option of fine to serve as deterrent to others.

He handed down the sentence after Ahmed  pleaded guilty to a one count-charge of using his premises to sell Indian  hemp.

The offence, he said, contravened Section 9 of the Indian  Hemp Act,  2004.

The Police prosecutor, Cpl. Adah Michael, had told the court that a team of detectives led by one DSP Christoper Okun of the Kaiama Divisional Police Headquarters arrested the convict at Aboki village in Kaiama Local Government Area while selling Indian hemp.

She said the convict  confessed to have been in the business for two years. (NAN)
