Reggae artiste jailed for dugs

16 November 2012, 09:03

Ekiti - An Ado- Ekiti Federal High Court on Thursday sentenced a reggae musician, Ademayowa Fabamise, to three -month imprisonment over Indian Hemp.

Justice Adamu Hobon sentenced the convict who had earlier pleaded guilty to the charge without an option of fine.

 ``I have carefully looked at the facts presented before me by the prosecution and the plea of guilt by the convict, I hereby find him guilty and convict him as charged,’’ Hobon declared.

Mr Iliya Waji, the prosecutor, had earlier told the court that the convict conspired with one Babatunde Apanisi, to deal in 150 grammes of Cannabis Sativa on Sept. 1, 2012 at Ilesa Street, Oye-Ekiti, in Oye Local Government Area of Ekiti .

The prosecutor tendered to the court a Certificate of Test Analysis; packing of substance form; a request for scientific gauge form; a drug analysis report confirming the substance to be Indian Hemp. He also tendered the confessional statement of the convict and a bulk of the substance concealed in a blue polythene bag.

Waji said that the offence contravened Section14 of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA) Act Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004. Mr Layi Obisesan, the Counsel to the convict, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy. Obisesan said that the convict, a father of a three month-old baby, was honest to have admitted guilt.
