The Nigerian Police have arrested a teenager in connection with drug offences.

The 13-year-old boy (name withheld) was arrested for being in possession of 29 wraps of weed suspected to be Indian hemp and seven wraps of weeds called ‘Sconge’.

The weeds were reportedly given to him to sell by one Akeem Ojuolape.

The boy, a secondary school student in one of the secondary schools in Osun State, upon interrogation told police he did not know what drug he was carrying.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Fimihan Adeoye, made the disclosure at a news conference in Osogbo on Friday.

Adeoye said one Ahmed Azeez was also arrested along with the duo on May 14, adding that the suspects would be charged to court at the conclusion of investigation.

The commissioner, however, said the minor would be rehabilitated.
