Tonto Dikeh And Her Wahala: NDLEA Probes More Celebrities For Hard Drugs

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has said it is keeping tabs on more celebrities in Nollywood and the music industry for drug trafficking, abuse and links with drug cartels....The agency said the move became necessary, following its investigation into the activities of controversial actress and singer, Tonto Dikeh, for possible consumption of hard drugs.
Head of Public Affairs, NDLEA, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, said:
 “We are beaming our searchlight on more celebrities with regard to drug trafficking and abuse.

“The arrest and conviction of Nollywood stars, Hassanat Akinwande, popularly known as Wunmi, and Tochi Uche have clearly shown that some members in the sector are vulnerable and susceptible to manipulation by drug cartels. 

“We have a responsibility to investigate and identify anyone involved in drug trafficking and use.  We are deeply concerned, when such personalities are linked with drugs because of their large number of fans.”
Ofoyeju said the implication of having celebrities dealing in hard drugs was that their fans might like to act like their role models.
