The Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) has arrested two juveniles of a named School in Ndola for trafficking in drugs after putting drugs in food they served to their teachers.
The two juvenile pupils allegedly baked a cake laced with cannabis for their teachers during the commemoration of World Teachers Day.
DEC Spokesperson Theresa Katongo told media in a statement that after consuming the said cake, the five teachers began laughing loudly and behaving strangely.
Ms. Katongo added that two of the teachers later got very sick and were admitted at Ndola Central Hospital.
She said the two juvenile pupils are currently in Police custody and will appear in Court soon.
Ms. Katongo has since warned school-going children to desist from engaging in illicit activities as they risk ruining their future.
