By Ahmad Hadizat Omayoza, Mamos Nigeria
Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency , NDLEA, have captured a drug top dog needed for a few endeavors to transport unlawful medication transfers to the United Kingdom through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport and different courses.
The capture of the famous top dog, Obiorah Samuel, beat the rundown of captures made by operatives of NDLEA through ban tasks that prompted the capture of four tons of illegal substances in the previous week.
Obiorah has been on the needed rundown of the organization since September 15, 2023, when a transfer of 1.500kg skunk disguised in flour going to London, UK was captured at the SAHCO trade shed of the Murtala Muhammed Worldwide Air terminal, Ikeja, Lagos, and his cargo specialist, Nworah Valuable, captured.
The organization said, “Persuaded that the 1.500kg transfer had cruised through, Obiorah strolled into the organization’s trawl on September 28, when he actually brought one more tranche of 2.00kg covered in containers to the air terminal for shipment to the UK.
“In his meeting, Obiorah guaranteed he was into shoes deals in Lagos prior to wandering into the illegal medication business.”
In the mean time, agents of the Government Capital Domain Order of the organization on September 29, blocked a compartment truck with number plate BD G41 XM coming from Lagos to Kano at the Gwagwalada region of the FCT.
No less than 1,188 kilograms of skunk stacked at Owo, Ondo State and secret under containers of tooth glue were recuperated from the truck and its driver, Amafan Fattison, 28, captured.
Along these lines, NDLEA officials in Bayelsa State on September 27, seized 432kgs of a similar substance from an unwanted J5 transport along Saipem street, Opolo, Yenagoa.
The vehicle was similarly recuperated from the scene for additional examination.
In Kano, a septuagenarian granddad, Ado Unguwa, 70, was captured on September 30, with 143.2kgs skunk in Dindere town, Tofa LGA.
