Mother And Daughter Arrested For Selling Cannabis, Skunk In Ogun (Photo)

The operatives of the Ogun State Police
Command have apprehended a 43-year-old
woman, Alaba Mulika and her 16-year-old
daughter identified simply as Olamide, for
allegedly trading in cannabis.

The mother and daughter who are were
dwarfs were part of 56 suspects paraded by
the Police on Thursday, with the

Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu,
saying that various units of operatives had
been deployed in different areas of the
state to curtail kidnapping, robbery,
cultism and other crimes.

Speaking on the arrest of the mother and
daughter at the command’s headquarters at
Eleweran, Abeokuta, Iliyasu said that
Mulika had engaged in sale of the illicit
drug for more than five years

Iliyasu said that on August 5, at about 10:00
a.m., operatives of Special Anti-Robbery
Squad (SARS) got information about the
sale of Indian hemp in Awa Ijebu, so they
stormed the town and raided the suspects’
joint.

“On getting there, they found the woman
and her daughter selling hemp, skunk and
other drugs and arrested them with their
exhibits,” he stated.

It was learnt that Mulika was arrested by
SARS about two years ago and handed over
to the state command of the National Drug
Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). It was
further gathered that the woman was once
a visitor of the anti-drug agency before her
arrest by SARS two years ago.

While speaking in an interview with the
Nigerian Tribune, Mulika, who said she
was an Oru indigene but lives in Awa
Ijebu, confirmed that she was arrested
because she was selling Indian hemp.

“I didn’t have any problem with the
traditional ruler of Awa-Ijebu; it is the
Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in the town
who said he doesn’t want people selling
Indian hemp.

“I know Indian hemp is not good, and the
Nigerian law does not support trading in it,
but I am into it in order to survive.

My husband is late. My daughter, Olamide, was
not helping me to sell Indian hemp; we
were just together in the shop when
policemen came to arrest me.

“When I was told to stop selling Indian
hemp, I agreed, but I pleaded that I should
be allowed to finish selling the ones I had.
I am ready to stop selling Indian hemp; I
am ready to join the theatre industry if I
can find someone to introduce me into it.”

The 16-year-old daughter, Olamide, who
spoke with the Nigerian Tribune, also said:
“I know my mother used to sell Indian
hemp, but that was what we were
surviving on.

“She feeds eight people along with herself,
making nine. My grandma is down with
stroke, and my mother’s younger sister,
who is also a dwarf, has cancer of the
breast. And it is only my mother who is
taking care of them all.”
