‘12,385kg drugs smuggled Into Lagos on Waterways intercepted’ — NDLEA

12,385 kilograms of Loud Cannabis, a strong variant of the illicit weed imported from a neighbouring country and smuggled into Lagos through the waterways were at the weekend seized by the operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

Making this known, NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, said the operatives who were acting on credible intelligence stayed on guard knowing that 12, 385 pellets of Loud Cannabis were to be brought in from the West African country through the ocean.

The NDLEA spokesperson argued that the drugs were ferried with boats to the Eko Atlantic Beach, Victoria Island from where they were supposed to be distributed to drug hotspots such as Island, Peti Alagba, and others across Lagos and other states.

Babafemi noted that “Over 50 narcotic officers stormed the beach on Saturday 27th November 2021, recovered the consignments along with two long trucks, a Toyota Sienna bus, and arrested three suspects. Those arrested include Abdulkadri Zakari, 24; Ka’abu Sausu, 45, and Lawrence Adie, 27.”
