NDLEA arrests port terminal operator, dock worker over 1,044.29kg coc@ine, others

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, say it have begun to unmask members of an organized criminal network behind the recent importation of two containers laden with illicit dr¥gs as well as assorted arms and amm¥nition from Durban, South Africa to the Tincan seaport in Lagos.

The agency’s spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, February 25, 2024.

“Among those already arrested as members of the syndicate are: a clearing and notify party of the two containers, Falowo Samuel Kayode; a dock worker, Anjorin Idowu and Uzairu Ahmed Iguda who is in charge of the Five Star terminal at the port. Another dock worker at the terminal, Mohammed Muktar Sule (alias organizer) who is equally linked to the syndicate is currently at large.

Based on credible intelligence, the Agency had requested for a 100 percent joint examination of two containers marked MSCU 4581770 and TRHU 7968071 from South Africa. As a result, the exercise was conducted with other stakeholders on 18th and 19th of January, 2024 during which 56.39kg cocaine and 795kg Colorado, a synthetic strong strain of cannabis among other illegal items were recovered from the containers.

Ongoing investigations have led to the discovery of more bags of Colorado weighing 192.7kg, a pistol, and rounds of amm¥nition removed from the container, MSCU 4581770 and hidden in an empty container before the 100 percent joint examination at the Five Star terminal….(swipe left to keep reading.)
