Lagos – A Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday ordered that a 27-year-old man, Kareem Osho, who pleaded guilty to trafficking 150g of cannabis, be remanded in a correctional facility.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) charged Osho with drug trafficking.

Justice Chuka Obiozor, who ordered that Osho be remanded in Ikoyi Correctional Centre, adjourned the case until March 3, for review of facts before sentencing.

Earlier, Mr Jeremiah Aernan, said Osho committed the offence on Jan. 13.

He said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 11(c) of the NDLEA Act, Cap N30, Laws of the Federation 2004.
