The Federal High Court in Kano is set to begin the trial of a thirty year old woman who was caught planting cocaine in a pastor’s house by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

The accused will appear before Justice Zainab Abubakar today Wednesday, May 25th, 2016.

According to the NDLEA Commander in Kano, Mr. Hamza Umar, preliminary investigation revealed that the accused Mrs. Joy Ogundare who lives in the same compound with Pastor Richard Ekenne was caught red-handed planting 2.2grams of cocaine in the pastor’s apartment.

The accused, in her statement, confessed that her intention was to implicate Pastor Richard because of the misunderstanding between her and the Pastor.

She told The Nation: “I am not in good terms with Pastor Richard. We even have a pending case at the Magistrate Court here in Kano. That was why I wanted to plant cocaine in his apartment to implicate him but I was caught in the process by NDLEA Officers.”
