NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi said the suspect was wanted for attempting to export 69.65kilograms of cocaine, heroin and cannabis to the United Kingdom through the NAHCO export shed of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos.

Operatives of the NDLEA were said to have traced Ikeanyionwu, on Sunday, August 15, 2021, to a popular Pentecostal church at Mike Ajari Street, Ojodu-Berger, where they arrested him soon after he stepped out of the church service.

“His arrest followed the interception of a consignment of illicit drugs weighing 69.65kg going to the UK through the Lagos airport on Thursday, 12th August, 2021.

“The illegal baggage had been sent to the airport for export through a freight forwarding company, which in turn gave a driver to deliver at the NAHCO export shed.

“Following the arrest of the driver, follow up operations and investigations later revealed the true identity of the actual owner of the consignment, Stephen Afam Ikeanyionwu, who was arrested three days later in a sting operation,” Babafemi said.

KanyiDaily had also reported how Bishop Elijah Orhonigbe was arrested for allegedly drugging and raping a 19-year-old girl during a deliverance session in his church in Delta State.
