Notorious Drug Dealer Arrested In Adamawa



A notorious drug dealer, identified as Mamudu Njobdi, has been arrested by officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency after the suspect’s house was raided.

It was learnt that the agency had earlier arrested the wanted drug leader in Mubi, Adamawa State, on February 22, but he escaped with the help of the hoodlums he mobilized to attack operatives of the NDLEA.

He was said to have fled with the exhibits the officers recovered from him during the first arrest.

However, in a statement on Sunday, the NDLEA Director, Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, the drug lord has been re-arrested.

The statement read, “In Adamawa State, the house of a wanted notorious drug dealer, Mamudu Njobdi, at Sebore, Gyalla Road Dougada ward, Mubi, was raided in the early hours of February 27 where he was arrested and drug exhibits recovered.

“The 31-year-old suspect was earlier arrested on February 22 at his drug joint in Kolere Water Board but mobilised thugs to attack NDLEA officers and in the process escaped with exhibits.”

It was further established that he obtained the Guinean international passport in Guinea Bissau, where he said his mother came from.

“In the same vein, a 24-year-old passenger travelling to Oman, Etounu Monday, was intercepted at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Monday, February 27, during the outward clearance of Ethiopian Airline flight ET 950 while attempting to export 1.924kg of skunk concealed in cream tubes,” he said.
