  7. Thank God for this recovery and hope others are also found. People should be careful where they buy their drugs cos there are fake ones in the market. Try and get your drugs in good pharmaceutical shops not on any shop you see on the road.

  8. That’s how they are producing drugs that are killing people.I pray they catch other illegal companies.

  10. Kudos to the NDLEA.
    If crime could always be exposed in Nigeria. I think our country will be a better place

  11. Great ney… I believe this kind of illegal factory are in every state in Nigeria, especially the populated ones.

  12. There should be a genuine will power by the government of the day to clamp down on illegalities. The society is no longer safe with these practices.

  13. Nice work NDLEA. The owners of these labs should be convicted. They are examples of Nigerians destroying their fellow citizens.

  14. Why is it that majority of bad bad things is always happening in Imo State? Am not understanding o
    Great job to NDLEA

  15. Out of the Nigeria force,ndlea is part of the hard working force..people producing illegal drugs are dangerous to the society.

  16. Bravo NDLEA! This is the reason there more cancer cases, kidney failure..pls dnt collect bribe oh..close more fake laboratory..
    This is good..

  17. Good they were nabbed…despite government effort in regulating the lives of its citizens, yet,some unscrupulous people see it as advantage.

  18. Can’t the owners of these agencies just go and register to become legal, from what I read the drugs are not poison or made for a bad purpose, that’s the problem with Nigeria, you catch someone who can do some certain things you lock them up with their knowledge instead of using it to develop the country that’s the difference between us and developed countries

  19. I pray NDLEA will continue to get hold of all these illegal drug dealers and manufacturers. Many of our youths are drug addict because of the availability of these drug dealers.

  24. Good job. Don’t be surprise that the owner of that lab, maybe quack or even a drop out. He needed to be prosecuted and dealt with. What nonsense!!!

  25. this is a very interesting story and I hope ndlea will continue it’s good work till when Nigeria will become an illegal drugs free country.

  26. Wow…kudos to the NDLEA..this drugs issues is becoming too much..let them keep up the good work..other areas this illegal acts are being carried out will soon be exposed…

  27. Job well done NDLEA! Nigerians killings Nigerians all because of money. This is how God will be exposing you one by one except you repent.
