Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have uncovered a hotel in Abuja where drugs are sold and young ladies camped for commercial sex.
At least, four persons, three ladies and a man were arrested when the drug joint, JAT Suites, located at 30 Lobito Crescent, Wuse 2 was raided and some quantity of Rohypnol and paraphernalia for smoking crack cocaine were recovered on Wednesday 22nd September 2021.
NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said on Sunday in Abuja that investigations show the hotel is operated without requisite approvals in a high-profile neighbourhood and patronised by ‘call girls’ while the bar serves as the spot to smoke and sell drugs to young girls and their customers.
He also said that the Chairman/Chief Executive, NDLEA, Brig-Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) directed the FCT Command and the Directorate of Assets and Financial Investigations of the agency to follow a lawful process to ensure the property is forfeited to the federal government to serve as deterrence to others who allow their premises to be used for drug dealing.
