The operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have intercepted 1.9 million tablets of Tramadol (225mg) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos State.

The NDLEA spokesperson made the disclosure via a statement issued and made available to The Star on Sunday.
Babafemi noted that the drugs were seized through inter-agency collaboration between NDLEA and the Nigerian Customs.

He stated that the pharmaceutical opioids packed in 50 cartons weighing 2,058.90kg, were imported from Pakistan via Addis-Ababa on Ethiopian Airways, adding that the consignment was concealed among other non-controlled pharmaceuticals.

The anti-drug agency spokesman stated that a freight agent, Aliyu Abubakar, was also arrested by the NDLEA operatives at the NAHCO export shed of the Lagos airport over an attempt to export a consignment of cannabis concealed inside bottles of Caro white body lotion.
Speaking on the arrests and seizures, the NDLEA Chairman/Chief Executive, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), commended the anti-narcotic officers for their resilience.

Marwa further charged them and their compatriots in other commands to remain focused and vigilant in their areas of responsibility.
