NDLEA Intercepts Trailer Loads of Illicit Drugs in Lagos State


The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has intercepted three trailer loads of opioids, comprising three million, four hundred and fifty thousand pills and three hundred and forty-four bottles of codeine syrup at Abule Ado in Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State.

Director, Media and Advocacy, NDLEA Headquarters, Abuja, Femi Babafemi, who made this known in a statement revealed the multi-billion-naira consignments were loaded into two 40-foot container trucks and another 20-foot truck at the AML bonded terminal, Abule-Osun, near the International Trade Fair Complex.

He said the trucks then headed for a large warehouse at Abule-Ado where NDLEA officers eventually arrested the suspects and recovered the opioid consignments last Thursday.

While commending the efforts of the Agency across various States in the country, the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Rtd.) assured the Agency that Security Operatives will continue to collaborate with both local and international bodies to ensure that the scourge of illicit drug trafficking and abuse is reduced to the barest minimum in Nigeria.
