The apprehension of a 42-year-old suspect, Taofeek Yusuf, and the seizure of the illicit substance followed credible intelligence.

Furthermore, the agency thwarted drug trafficking efforts at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, where a Milan-bound passenger, Godwin ThankGod, was apprehended with codeine-based syrup and rohypnol concealed in his luggage.

In a separate incident, NDLEA operatives seized 300,000 tramadol pills from a consignment arriving from Pakistan at the SAHCO import shed in Lagos. Additionally, tramadol and cannabis sativa hidden in sports shoes destined for Oman, and another consignment with tramadol and rohypnol concealed in spices bound for the United Kingdom, were intercepted at courier firms in Lagos.

The agency’s Directorate of Operation and General Investigation (DOGI) also uncovered a clandestine skuchies factory in Ibadan, where cannabis sativa, tramadol, rohypnol, and a liquid mixture containing psychoactive substances were confiscated.

“Multiple arrests were made across various states, including Ondo, Edo, Katsina, and Gombe, with significant quantities of cannabis seized,” the Director, Media an Advocacy, Mr. Femi Babagemi revealed that “The NDLEA continued its War Against Drug Abuse (WADA) campaign, conducting sensitisation lectures in schools and advocacy visits to prominent figures.”

Chairman/CEO of NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) commended the officers for their efforts, urging them to maintain the offensive action tempo while emphasizing the importance of balancing enforcement with drug demand reduction initiatives.
