The operatives of the Nigerian Prisons Service have arrested a female visitor by the name, Ijeoma Franca Joseph, with parcels of Indian hemp.

The substance which was allegedly concealed in a carton of spicy biscuits, was discovered during a routine search on visitors by security operatives at the gate of the medium security prison.

Confirming the development, Command Public Relations Officer, Chukwuedo Humphrey, said on interrogation, “the suspect claimed that man named Daniel had engaged her to take the package to his brother, Miracle Amechi, an inmate in custody.”

He said that the carton of biscuit contained sachets of beverages, shirts and N2,500, adding that the suspect claimed that she did not know the real contents of the carton.

She has however been handed over to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA for further necessary action
