NDLEA Intercepts Three Trailer Loads of Drugs At AML Bonded Terminal


Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have intercepted three trailer loads of opioids at Abule Ado in Amuwo Odofin LGA in Lagos.

This was announced in a statement by NDLEA. It said three suspects were arrested in connection with the seizure of 3,450,000 pills and 344,000 bottles of codeine syrup.

NDLEA said the multibillion-naira consignments were loaded into two 40ft container trucks and another 20ft truck at the AML bonded terminal, Abule-Osun, near the International Trade Fair complex.

The NDLEA director of media and advocacy said that the trucks later headed to a warehouse at Abule-Ado, where NDLEA officers eventually arrested the suspects and recovered the opioid consignments on May 9.

“Those arrested include the warehouse agent, Cosmas Obiajulu, 51; Ridwan Balogun, 25, and Banjo Tayo, 30, drivers of two of the trucks, while the third driver jumped off to escape arrest,” he said.
