Ibadan - A 35-year-old man was jailed by the Federal High Court in Ibadan for dealing in weed.
Bridget Viashimah, prosecutor in the case, said that Waheed Adebiyi was arraigned on a one-count charge of dealing in cannabis. Adebiyi was arrested in April.
The defendant was caught with a bag containing 1.7 kg of weed.
The defendant pleaded guilty to the charge. Adebiyi’s counsel, Oladipupo Olaosebikan, ask the court to be lenient with his client because he was the bread winner of his family.
Abimbola Obaseki-Adejumo, the judge in the case, sentenced Adebiyi to three months imprisonment with an option of paying N20 000.
