NDLEA operatives raided a lounge in Osogbo on Saturday where a party organised for illicit substance abuse was to hold.

The operatives arrested some of the organisers who were found with drug exhibits.

NDLEA spokesman, Mr Femi Babafemi stated on Sunday in Abuja that the raid followed a credible intelligence report that a night party tagged: “Unholy Alliance for Stoners and Drunkards’’ was to hold at the lounge.

He stated that different types of illicit substances were to be sold and consumed by the revellers.

“Soon after the organisers began to gather at Berrymist Lounge located at Ofatedo Area of Osogbo to start the party, NDLEA operatives swooped in on them.

“The operatives arrested the organisers and seized illicit substances and drug paraphernalia from them.

“Those arrested included Ikotu Omolayo (25), Fola Olabode (30) and Akorede Adunni Ajibola (22). The management of the lounge has been invited for investigation.

“This comes on the heels of an earlier raid on Thursday, Nov. 23 at Area 5 Forest Reserve, Ile-Ife, also in Osun where operatives recovered 156kg of Indian hemp,’’ Babafemi stated.
