Two young women arrested for attempting to smuggle ‘Colorado’ for suspects in EFCC custody
Two young women identified as Jumoke Ayodele and Opeoluwa Temitayo have been arrested by the Ibadan Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over an attempt to smuggle substances believed to be hard drug to suspects in the custody of the zonal office.
A medical officer with the commission disclosed that the substance is ‘colorado drug’ noted for having dire psychological effect on its abusers.
The two young women admitted that the substance was a hard drug, meant for the consumption of the detainees.
To convey the drugs, the duo wrapped them in small cellophane packs and tucked them inside sausages they brought for the detainees.
Although the detainees are fed by the anti-graft commission but they are also allowed to receive meals from their visiting relatives, which are carefully evaluated by the Commission’s officers to ensure that the detainees do not come to harm as a result of what they ingest.
The suspects, Itiowe Kelvin, Oluwatobi Damilola and Ayodele David were among those arrested during a recent raid on suspected internet fraudsters in the state.
The ladies will be handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for further investigation and possible prosecution.
