…contrabands concealed in tomato paste, used clothes
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has intercepted illicit drugs and arrested some suspects in its war against drug abuse.
The spokesperson for the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, made the development known to the media.
Babafemi noted that NDLEA operatives intercepted consignments of skunk concealed in tomato pastes, and methamphetamine hidden in used clothes meant for export to Dubai, the United Argsvsab Emirates.
“While the skunk in tomato pastes consignment weighing 20kgs was intercepted on Friday, September 8, at the SAHCO export shed of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, the meth shipment with a gross weight of 1.60kg was seized at a courier company in Lagos.
“Another consignment of 556 grammes of Canadian Loud sent from Canada to one Tunji Adebayo in Ikorodu, Lagos, was also intercepted by NDLEA officers of the Directorate of Operations and General Investigation, attached to courier firms.
“Though Adebayo was not home when operatives visited his house at 52, Aina Atoloye Street, Ikorodu, he, however, directed his younger brother to sign for the package on his behalf. The brother was promptly arrested,” Babafemi said.
Meanwhile, NDLEA operatives on Monday, September 4, raided the enclave of a notorious drug lord in Akala, Mushin, Lagos, Abdul Rauf, aka ‘Na God’, where 1,101kgs of Ghanaian Loud was recovered and three suspects arrested, while the wanted kingpin remains at large.Follow us on social media
