27 May 2016, 11:17 Steven Njugunah

Nyahururu - A man suspected to be behind the selling of bhang to students in Ol Jooro Orok constituency was Thursday charged in a Nyahururu court.

Rashid Wagura denied the charges before principal magistrate Peter Ndege and was released on KES 150,000 bond with a surety of a similar amount or KES 50,000 cash bail.

He was charged that on May 25, 2016 at Munanda village in Nyandarua County, he was found in possession of 1.5 kg of bhang with an estimated street value of KES 10,000.

The court heard that the accused person who has been operating just few meters from Weru secondary school was arrested by a security team led by area chief who was acting on a tip off from members of the public.

He was taken to Ol Jooro Orok police station where he was charged with the offence.

The case will be heard on June 23 this year with a mention on June 9.

Early last week, a former prison warden escaped after Security personnel in the area busted him selling bhang to students. A bhang parcel worth KES 20,000 was recovered from him.

According to the area assistant deputy County commissioner, Ms Gloria Akinyi, the area has of late become of serious security concern in the sub county with the increasing cases of rape, murder and suicide being linked to drug abuse.
