The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has declared an ex-beauty queen, Aderinoye Queen Christmas, also known as Oluwadamilola Aderinoye, wanted for allegedly dealing in illicit drugs.

Spokesman of the NDLEA Femi Babafemi said in a statement on Sunday that the ex-beauty queen was declared wanted after she escaped from her residence in the Lekki area of Lagos State when operatives of the anti-drug agency raided her apartment at Oral Estate on Wednesday, January 24, 2024.

The suspect was Miss Commonwealth Nigeria Culture 2015/2016 and founder of Queen Christmas Foundation.

Babafemi listed items recovered from Aderinoye’s home during the search witnessed by the estate officials to include 606 grams of Canadian Loud (a synthetic strain of cannabis), an electronic weighing scale, large quantities of drugs packing plastics, a black RAV 4 SUV marked Lagos KSF 872 GQ, and her picture frame.

Several operations were also conducted across the country.

“While commending the officers and men of the MMIA, Lagos, Seme, Kano, Gombe, Kogi, Plateau and Jigawa Commands of the Agency for their outstanding feats in the past week, Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) equally applauded their counterparts in all the commands across the country for intensifying their WADA advocacy lectures thus creating a balance between their drug supply reduction and drug demand reduction activities,” the statement said.
