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.”
