The NDLEA, in a charge sheet signed by its prosecutor L.N Nor, alleged that the teenager committed the offence on October 3 in Ikorodu, a Lagos suburb.

NDLEA said the offence contravened sections 11 (c) and 14(b) of the NDLEA Act, Cap N30 Laws of the Federation, 2004.

The act specifies life imprisonment if convicted of the offence.

No date has been fixed for the arraignment of the teenager.
