NDLEA seizes container loaded with tramadol in Lagos


NDLEA arrets three in cocaine burst

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has confirmed the seizure of a container loaded with tramadol at the Apapa seaport in Lagos.

At the Apapa seaport, about two million capsules of tramadol (precisely 1,994,400 capsules) tucked in 554 cartons were intercepted in the container, which was falsely declared to contain ceramic tiles.

According to the Apapa seaport Area Commander of the NDLEA, Mr. Samuel Gadzama, one of the containers bearing the illicit drug had been intercepted and seized in Kenya.

“Although the second container found its way to Nigeria, the eagle eyes of our narcotic agents discovered it during a joint inspection of the ship. We’re continuing with further investigations,” he stated.
