NDLEA intercepts over N2bn worth of illicit drugs at Lagos airport

 

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, have intercepted illicit drugs worth over N2billion at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA, Ikeja, Lagos and three suspected traffickers arrested.



One of the suspects, Aniede Chimezie Bright, was arrested on Sunday 28th March 2021, during the outward clearance of passengers on Air Marroc, with 7.1 Kg of Methamphetamine carefully concealed in food spices and packed in a Swiss polo suit case. The illicit substance was bound for Spain with street value of over N2 billion.



According to the Commander, MMIA Command of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Garba, “Unarguably, the closure of borders occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic is responsible for the surge in the price of these drugs. For instance, the price of meth in Australia had increased from 200 dollars to 600 dollars per gramme due supply cut, hence the desperation by the traffickers and barons alike.”
