At the SAHCO import shed of the Lagos airport, the search for consolidated cargo from South Africa led to the discovery of smuggled bottled Cannabis juice with a gross weight of 16.50kgs on Wednesday 21 December.

A statement issued by the NDLEA on Sunday said, investigations by antinarcotics officers subsequently led to the arrest of four freight agents: Soremekun Olalekan Wasiu; Olufisayo Dayo; Moruf Olusegun Bashir and Imole Moses Ajayi, whose statements eventually led to the arrest of the consignee, a wine shop business owner, Emebede Chuka, the following day Thursday 22 Dec.

According to the statement, “Also, an attempt to export quantities of cannabis and ecstasy pills also known as MDMA concealed in beverage drink, Bournvita, containers to Dubai, UAE, through the NAHCO export shed on Friday 23 Dec was frustrated while a vulcaniser given the assignment for a fee of N4,000, lyanda Ogunleye Yaya has been arrested.
