NDLEA Busts Ikorodu
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), a federal law enforcement agency, has been given a mandate from the Federal Ministry of Justice (Nigeria) to stop the manufacture, distribution, sale, export, and trafficking of hard drugs.
The agency raided a cocaine warehouse in Ikorudu, Lagos State, on Sunday, September 18, 2022. The warehouse had about 193,000,000,000 worth of cocaine. Four barons, including a Jamaican, were arrested in the raid.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) reported that the two-day operation, which took place in several parts of Lagos state, was carefully planned and intelligence-driven.
The warehouse, which is located at 6 Olukuola Crescent in Solebo Estate, Ikorodu, was raided on Sunday night and Monday, September 19, and the barons were taken from hotels and their hiding places in various parts of Lagos. This information was obtained by MandyNews.com from the agency’s official website.
Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd), Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, said the bust is a historical blow to the drug cartels and a strong warning that they’ll all go down if they fail to realize that the game has changed while commending all the officers and men of the Agency involved in the extensive investigation, including those of the American Drug Enforcement Administration (US-DEA).
