Suspected drug kingpin and Lagos socialite, Mrs. Fumilola Arike, Ogbuaya a.k.a. Arike Fumilola Ogundipe, has been arraigned by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

The defendant, who is facing a three- count charge of conspiracy, aiding and procuring of substances found to be cocaine pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Justice Shagari in her ruling granted the accused bail application on the ground that the first defendant had been granted bail.

However, Ogbuaya was remanded in prison pending when she will perfect her bail conditions.

The case was also adjourned till June 28 and 29 for trial.
