Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency have apprehended one Ezenyeche Kingsley Ebuka after he was discovered with five pellets of heroin weighing 250grams at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
Ebuka, was arrested upon his arrival at the ‘D’ hall of the airport on June 14 aboard a Turkish airline flight from Pakistan with the illicit drug inserted in his anus.
This was contained in the statement issued by NDLEA Director of Media & Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, on Sunday.
Babafemi, however, failed to beat the eagle-eyed narcotic officers during the inward clearance of passengers on the flight.
While commending the MMIA Commands for sustaining the offensive action against illicit drug trafficking and the cartels running it, Chairman of the agency, Gen. Buba Marwa (retd.) warned that the NDLEA will not spare any law enforcement agent hiding under the privilege of his uniform to engage in narcotic criminal business.
“Those who think they can sabotage ongoing efforts to rid Nigeria of the menace of illicit drug trafficking and abuse hiding behind the façade of their uniforms should better think twice because they’ll have NDLEA to contend with.”
“We’ll not only arrest and expose them but we’ll equally prosecute them and seize all assets acquired through the proceeds of their criminal act,” he warned.
