Lagos Lady Declared Wanted By NDLEA For 'Dealing' Drugs Surrenders

A Lagos socialite, Fumilola Arike Ogbuaya, aka Arike Fumilola Ogundipe, who has been on the run since February 2017 over her indictment for the unlawful exportation of 1.595kg of cocaine to Saudi Arabia, has reported herself to the NDLEA.

NDLEA spokesman Mitchell Ofoyeju confirmed this in an official statement. He said Fumilola was declared wanted by the anti-narcotics agency after an investigation into Odeyemi Omolara Morayo, who was arrested while attempting to smuggle cocaine from Nigeria to Saudi Arabia, implicated the socialite in the drug smuggling scheme.

Mr. Ofoyeju said that the NDLEA has also secured an interim forfeiture order of her assets worth billions of naira after she ignored several of the agency’s invitations for questioning. 

Among the assets are expensive properties located in Lagos, Ogun, and Osun states.
