« on: September 18, 2015, 11:36:49 AM »

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Thursday arrested a Bureau De Change operator and five others for swallowing $156,000 (N31, 083, 000.00) at Excel Oriental Hotel along Airport Road, Lagos.

They had the intention of exporting the monies to Brazil.

NDLEA Chairman, Ahmadu Giade, confirmed the arrest.

He assured that the agency would track down suspected drug traffickers and currency launderers in a bid to rid the society of crimes.

Giade also warned that operators of bureau de change who fail to work within the confines of the law establishing them shall be severely sanctioned.

NDLEA Commander, Joint Task Force, JTF, Mr. Adeniyi Muyiwa, gave the names of the suspects as Nwokenta Kingsley, 37, a Bureau de change operator, also known as Buchito; Onwuasoanya Augustine Chukwuemeka, 54, who lives in Brazil and Christian Okoli Ifor, 35, based in Brazil.

Others are Nwokenta Emmanuel Maduakolam, 31; Ezenwa Ikenna, 28, a specialist in wrapping; and Ezenwa Uzoma, a 33-year-old hotel manager.

He stressed that an interim investigation report by the anti-narcotics agency revealed that Mr. Nwokenta Kingsley, a.k.a Buchito was the brain behind the suspected criminal act.

According to Mr. Muyiwa, Mr. Kingsley allegedly supplied $120,000 to be swallowed and illicitly exported to Brazil.

He said: ?Onwuasoanya Augustine Chukwuemeka swallowed 74 wraps of dollars amounting to one hundred and eleven thousand ($111,000).

?Christian Okoli Ifor, who resides in Brazil had forty-five thousand dollars which he wanted to swallow. Nwokenta Emmanuel, who is the manager of Amazon Bureau de Change played a supportive role in the alleged crime.

?Ezenwa Ikenna was hired to wrap the money.?
