court_logo_2Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke of a Federal High Court, Lagos on Monday remanded a 60-year-old man over alleged unlawful possession of 150.8g of heroin and 12.3g of cocaine

Aneke remanded James Ayepe and 33-year-old Ada-Chinenye Njoku, with whom he allegedly committed the crime.

The judge remanded Ayepe at the Ikoyi Prisons and ordered that Njoku should be kept at the Kirikiri Prisons.

He remanded the accused pending determination of bail applications filed by their Counsel, Mrs Lilian Omotunde but opposed by the Prosecutor, Mr Jeremiah Aernan.

The accused are standing trial on a four-count charge but they pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor submitted that the duo conspired to traffic on the banned drugs as well as 41g of Indian hemp on Oct. 26 at Iyana-Ejigbo, Lagos.

Aernan said that Ayepe usually gave Njoku the banned drugs to sell for him.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 11 (c) and 14 (b) of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Cap N30, Laws of the Federation, 2004.

The case has been adjourned to Dec. 13 for ruling on the bail applications. (NAN)
