NDLEA intercepts consignments containing meth, skunk at Lagos Airport


Some operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have intercepted consignments of skunk concealed in tomato paste tins and methamphetamine hidden in used clothes.

The hard drugs were to be exported to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

A statement by the NDLEA spokesman, Mr Femi Babafemi on Sunday in Abuja stated that the skunk in tomato pastes consignment weighing 20kilograms was intercepted on Friday Sept. 8.

Babafemi said that the illicit drugs were seized at the Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc (SAHCO) export shed of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, (MMIA) Ikeja.

He said that the meth shipment with a gross weight of 1.60kg was seized at a courier company in Lagos.

Meanwhile, another consignment of 556 grams of Canadian Loud sent from Canada to one Tunji Adebayo in Ikorodu, Lagos was also intercepted by NDLEA officers of the Directorate of Operations and General Investigation, (DOGI), attached to courier firms.

Babafemi said that, though Adebayo was not home when operatives visited his house, he directed his younger brother to sign for the package on his behalf, who was promptly arrested.
