“His 31-year-old elder sister, Mrs. Hannatu Sini had been arrested on 16th April. 2021, at Gombi Local Government Area of Adamawa with 14.400kg of cannabis sativa and admitted keeping the exhibit for her younger brother, Adamu Musa who was subsequently placed on the wanted list of the command.
“This is even as an ex-convict, Mrs. Modinat Lawal, was arrested in Kano on Wednesday 19th Jan with 22kg cannabis sativa she brought into Nigeria from Benin Republic. She had earlier been arrested, prosecuted and jailed for the same offence. The Ogun state born trafficker claimed then that her name was Bola,” he said.
