Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency have arrested 15 suspected drug dealers in the Mushin area of Lagos State.
The spokesperson for the agency, Femi Babafemi, in a statement said the suspects, including two ladies.

He said, “The operatives stormed Akala, a notorious drug hub in the Mushin area of Lagos, arresting no fewer than 15 drug dealers, including two ladies, and seized 1,400 kilogrammes of cannabis sativa, among other illicit substances such as heroin, methamphetamine, and 320 bottles of codeine syrup, recovered from them on Friday, December 9.”

Babafemi noted that men of the NDLEA at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos State, also intercepted parcels of cocaine concealed in different parts of a travel bag brought into Nigeria by a Brazil returnee, Nwadinobi Uchemadu, from Sao Paulo, via Doha on a Qatar Airways flight.

He said Uchemadu was arrested on Monday, December 5, during inward clearance of passengers on the Qatar airways flight following the discovery of three parcels of cocaine weighing 2.70kg, factory sealed in parts of his travel bag.

Babafemi explained that on the same day, operatives at the SAHCO export shed of the airport also found cans of powdered milk, baby food and beverages used to conceal 3.4kg of cannabis going to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

A freight agent, Ewelike Chibuike, who presented the consignment for export, was reportedly arrested.

“Meanwhile, a raid operation on Abbi town, Ndokwa West LGA, Delta State, led to the arrest of a pregnant 30-year-old dealer, Aniekem Evelyn, as operatives recovered 1,161kg of cannabis sativa from her warehouse.

“In the same vein, parcels of cannabis weighing 6.30kg concealed in sound systems going to Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, through the SAHCO export shed of the airport were also seized on Thursday, December 8, by operatives, who initially arrested another culpable freight agent, Joseph Obiji, and later nabbed another agent, Mbanu Ifeanyi, a day after, in a follow-up operation at the Aspamda Market, Trade Fair complex, in the Ojo area of Lagos,” the NDLEA spokesman added.
