The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has raided a lounge in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, targeting a night party organised for the abuse of illicit substances.

In a Sunday statement, the agency’s spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said NDLEA operatives also arrested some organisers who were found in possession of drug exhibits in the operation.

“Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA on Saturday 25th November raided a lounge in Osogbo, the Osun state capital where a night party organized for illicit substance abuse was going to be held and arrested some of the organisers who were found with drug exhibits,” the statement read.

“The raid followed credible intelligence that some persons were going to hold a night party tagged Unholy Alliance for Stoners and Drunkards where different types of illicit substances were going to be sold and consumed by patrons. Soon after the organisers began to gather at Berrymist Lounge located in the Ofatedo area of Osogbo to start the party, NDLEA operatives swooped on them, arrested them, and recovered illicit substances of abuse and drug paraphernalia from them. Those arrested include Ikotu Omolayo, 25; Fola Olabode, 30, and Akorede Adunni Ajibola, 22. The management of the Lounge has also been invited for further investigation.

“This comes on the heels of an earlier raid on Thursday, November 23 at Area 5 forest reserve, Ile-Ife where operatives recovered 156kgs of cannabis sativa.
