« on: August 18, 2014, 01:38:08 AM »

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), said it has smashed a notorious cross-border drug trafficking syndicate that specialises in hiding drugs in vehicle engine compartment at the Seme Border, Lagos.

The NDLEA Seme Commander, Mr. Nicholas Ajaduronye, who disclosed this on Friday, said two members of the criminal group were nabbed at Gbaji check point along Lagos-Seme Expressway during routine check of vehicles.

Ajaduronye said both suspects concealed the drugs in the engine compartment.

?We have apprehended two members of a drug cartel that smuggle drugs into the country from Ghana. One of the suspects, Chukwura Ekene, 40, hid 18.3kg of compressed cannabis inside the air-condition components of his Mercedes-Benz car while Sulaiman Akinola, 35, concealed 9.750kg of ephedrine and 1.3kg of heroin in the headlight compartment of his Toyota Camry car,? Ajaduronye said.

The commander said Seme Area Command of the NDLEA between January and June 2014 seized 102.405kg of narcotic drugs and arrested 20 suspected drug traffickers, 18 males and two females in six months.

Of the cases charged to court within the period, four have been convicted.
