The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA didn’t find it funny whe they heard the story of how Nollywood bad girl posted a photo of Marijuana on her Twitter page. The agency has reacted strongly against the act, and in a statement said that Toton Dikeh may spend up to 15 years in jail. The NDLEA released a statement; See below;
“Our attention has been drawn to the post quite frankly and I can tell you that action will be taken on it. The law is clear and NDLEA has been very clear on the issue. No one is permitted to sell, use, cultivate or encourage the use of Indian hemp in Nigeria. The weed is one of the banned narcotics in the country.”To had on Friday posted photographs of a wrap of hemp and grains of the weed formed into the letters, ‘Happy birthday POKO.’
The reaction comes just days after the actress posted a photo of herself diplaying her wrapped and unwrapped weed on her twitter handle with the caption , ‘Mi smoke ganja mi smoke weed while my hatez smoke ma gossip”…’
Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju further stated that Tonto Dike’s case have already been referred to the appropriate department of the agency for investigation and prosecution.
“NDLEA Act Section 14 (b) states that any person who conspires with, aids, abets, counsels, attempts to commit or is an accessory to any act or offence referred to in this act shall be guilty of an offence under this act and liable on conviction to be sentenced to imprisonment for a term not less than 15 years and not exceeding 25 years,”he said.
