NDLEA confirms arrest of ‘aviation security company staff’ who tried to smuggle tr+madol hidden in a bottle of dietary supplements for a big boy through a traveller at MMIA, Lagos

Two vigilant freight agents and a traveler escaped being roped into two dr¥g trafficking operations by desperate traffickers at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA Ikeja, Lagos.

The two agents were contacted to send a consignment of 1kg c+nnabis concealed in tins of Milo beverage to Turkey but chose to submit the shipment to NDLEA checks before processing the cargo. The psychoactive substance was later discovered to be hidden inside the shipment.

This was contained in a statement released on Sunday by the Director Media and advocacy of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi. He said that NDLEA operatives on Friday, January 19, arrested one Okosun Paul Punitt, the consignee of a consignment of tr+madol concealed in a bottle of dietary supplements, which a staff of Pathfinder International Ltd – an aviation security company -, Ajuzieogu Mac-Elvis Ugochukwu, attempted sending through an intending passenger on Ibom Air to Accra, Ghana at the Lagos airport on Tuesday January 16, 2023.

It would be recalled that a video of the face-off between the passenger and Ajuzieogu later went viral after the vigilant passenger suspected the consignment contained illicit substances.

Both Ajuzieogu and the exhibit were later transferred to NDLEA on Thursday, January 18, by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN for investigation.

Preliminary findings by NDLEA showed the parcel contained 50 pills of tr+madol 225mg concealed in a bottle of dietary supplements. A follow-up operation by the Agency led to the arrest of Okosun upon his return from Ghana on Friday. He has in his statement confirmed ownership of the dr¥g.
