NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, in a statement on Sunday said the same Dirisu was first arrested barely a week and granted bail for attempting to smuggle drugs concealed in cassava flour meal called akpu into NDLEA cell for a suspect in custody.

The 35-year-old mother of a 2 month-old-baby was first arrested on 21st October by the Edo state Command of the Agency.

“Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) had on the same day directed that she be counselled and released immediately because of the young baby she was carrying.

Curiously, a controlled delivery operation carried out by operatives of the Delta state Command of the Agency on Saturday 30th October again led to the arrest of Mariam who had ordered for the drugs from Lagos even while still on bail for an earlier offence,” he said.
