A Lagos Federal High Court, today, convicted sentenced one Wasiu Kareem, to two and half years Imprisonment for Unlawful dealing in 25 grams of Cocaine.

Justice Faji after listening to the Counsel’s plea, sentenced the convict to two and a half Imprisonment without option of fine.

The judge ordered that the Convict’s jail terms commence from October 9, 2021, when he was arrested.
