NDLEA Lagos Command Intercepts Over N20m Worth Of Drugs

The Lagos State Command of the Nigeria Drug Law and Enforcement Agency has intercepted a truckload of 150 bags of prohibited drugs worth over N20 million.

The Command’s Spokesperson in a statement on Tuesday said the truck with registration number JJJ959XN, was intercepted on May 3 at 1:30 pm conveying cannabis Sativa weighing 2.139 tons concealed in the fake compartment of the truck.

“Two male suspects, Monday Michael, 46; the driver and Alex Adieli his conductor aged 43 years were also apprehended on their way from Ondo to Lagos State.’’

According to the Acting State Commander, Frederick Ezeorah, the interception was a result of intelligence gathered over a period of time on the alleged criminal activities of the suspects, believed to have specialised in bringing such illicit substances into Lagos State.
“The suspect during interrogation by NDLEA officers said he has been in the illicit dealings for years without being caught.

“ He appealed to NDLEA to be left off the hook as he will desist from the business.

“The consequences of trafficking in illicit drugs and abuse of dangerous substances must be the concern of every well-meaning Nigerian.

“The effect knows no bound and anybody can be a victim of its dangerous health and mental implications, violence and its associated crimes,’’ he said.

The commander, while commending the operatives who arrested the suspects, described the seizure as a panacea for peace and positive step towards eradicating drugs from circulation.
