I Am Guilty As Charged, Says Suspected Cocaine Pusher
A suspected Cocaine Pusher, Ibrahim Kabo,24, on Thursday told Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court, Abuja, that he was guilty of illicit drugs trafficking as charged.
Kabo was arraigned by the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on a two-count charge bordering on possession of illicit drugs.
The prosecution, Mr Mike Kassa, told the court that the offence contravened Section 11(c) of NDLEA Act 2004.
Kassa said that the suspect allegedly committed the offence on Oct.15, 2015 at Karu within the jurisdiction of the court.
He said that Kabo dealt in 4.3 grammes of cocaine, a narcotic drug similar to cannabis sativa and heroin.
“The suspect thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under section 11 (c) of NDLEA Act 2004,’’ the prosecution said.
However, the accused pleaded guilty to the charge.
In view of his plea, the prosecution urged the court to fix a date for review of the facts of the case and sentencing of the accused.
Kolawole adjourned the case till March 7, for sentence of the accused in view of his plea.
