  • NDLEA seized 15,064.62kg of cocaine, heroin worth N225 trillion at Lagos ports since 2006
  • Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement
    Agency (NDLEA), Col. Muhammad Mustapha
    Abdallah said that the Agency has seized over
    15,064kg of cocaine and heroin at the Tin Can
    and Apapa ports since 2006 with an estimated
    value of 225 trillion naira.
    Abdallah said that drug barons are targeting the
    ports for their illicit drug activities but the Agency
    will resist their scheming. The drugs include
    14,813.40kg of cocaine and 251.22kg of heroin.
    "The seaports are high risk drug trafficking
    locations because of the movement of
    large volume of consignments. Official
    record of drug seizures at the ports
    underscores the volatility of the ports in
    drug trafficking. Since 2006, the Agency
    has seized over 15,064kg of cocaine and
    heroin at the Lagos ports. The country
    cannot afford to condone this criminal
    trade because such huge proceeds in the
    hands of drugs cartels is threatening. We
    shall continue to screen incoming and
    outgoing vessels thereby making the ports
    impregnable to drug trafficking
    organisations".
    Abdallah added that the presence of the NDLEA at
    the ports is of immense economic and security
    benefit to the country and that the Agency will
    maintain alertness and frustrate any action
    targeted at disrupting her operations at the
    seaports. The Agency has the approval of the
    Federal Government to operate at the ports and
    this onerous responsibility shall be diligently and
    effectively discharged. Abdallah reiterated that the
    NDLEA will take reasonable measures in
    preventing the seaports from being used for drug
    trafficking.
    Some of the spectacular drug seizures made at
    the ports include 14.2 metric tons of cocaine
    imported from Chile and intercepted in June 2006
    at the Tin Can Island Port Lagos. The drug which
    was concealed in a shipment of white cement was
    rated the single largest seizure of cocaine in
    Africa and fifth largest in the world. There is also
    the celebrated case of 450.400kg of cocaine
    hidden in processed wood. The drug imported
    from Chile by a Taiwanese and a Chinese drug
    baron was intercepted at the Tin Can Island Port,
    Lagos in July 2010.
    In addition, 137.73kg of heroin was intercepted at
    the Tin Can Island Port, Lagos in November 2010.
    The heroin hidden in industrial equipment and
    sewing threads was imported from the Republic of
    Iran. Cocaine weighing 165kg packed in 150
    square parcels inside 38 cartons of floor tiles
    imported from Bolivia was equally intercepted at
    the Tin Can Island Port Lagos in January 2011. A
    week later, 110kg of cocaine was detected inside
    twenty-five (25) packs of floor tiles containing 4
    parcels each which originated from Bolivia also at
    Tin Can port.
    In May 2012, 113.49kg of heroin industrially
    concealed in three moulding machines imported
    from Islamabad, Pakistan in a 20 feet container
    was intercepted at the Tin Can Island Port Lagos
    in May 2012. The shipment was monitored and
    intercepted by NDLEA officials at Okota area of
    Lagos while it was being taken to a private
    warehouse.
    The NDLEA boss called on port operators to
    collaborate and support the Agency in ensuring
    zero tolerance for drug trafficking at the ports.
