NDLEA on weed issue with Nollywood, Tonto dike

After the incident with Tonto Dikeh a few weeks ago where she posted  photographs of a wrap of hemp and grains of the weed formed into the letters, ‘Happy birthday POKO’ and  a photograph of herself with the inscription, ‘Mi smoke ganja mi smoke weed while my haterz smoke ma gossip,’  The Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency has stated that they are set to probe other celebrities for use of  hard drugs.
NDLEA  has said it is keeping tabs on more celebrities in Nollywood and the music industry for drug trafficking, abuse and links with drug cartels. The Head, Public Affairs, NDLEA, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, said, “We are beaming our searchlight on more celebrities with regard to drug trafficking and abuse. The arrest and conviction of Nollywood stars, Hassanat Akinwande, popularly known as Wunmi, and Tochi Uche have clearly shown that some members in the sector are vulnerable and susceptible to manipulation by drug cartels. We have a responsibility to investigate and identify anyone involved in drug trafficking and use.  We are deeply concerned, when such personalities are linked with drugs because of their large number of fans.”
