The operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State police command have arrested a father and his son for selling Tramadol and other hard drugs to primary and secondary school pupils in Itire area of Lagos State.
The father, Ibrahim Sheu, 40 and Franku Ibrahim, 23, were arrested at the weekend after officials of the Office of Education and Quality Assurance, Lagos State, alerted the RRS officers about the incident.
The suspects, who are petty traders at a kiosk in Adedeji bus-stop, Itire, were caught selling the drugs to school pupils. Some of the pupils were later interrogated and released to their parents.
Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, advised parents and guardians to always debrief their wards whenever they come back from school to know their activities in schools and the kind of friends they associate with.
Edgal added that the case would be thoroughly investigated and the prosecution monitored. The suspects have been transferred to the SCID for further investigation.
