The spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi, said on Sunday in Abuja that the 53-year-old suspect was caught with 57 blocks of compressed cannabis sativa, concealed in the boot of his Toyota Corolla car with Reg. No. GMB 185 MF.

“He has been fingered as the mastermind of the mob attack in Hong on October 6, 2020 that led to the death of an NDLEA operative and another officer, now bedridden due to permanent incapacitation,” Babafemi said.

In Borno State, a drug dealer, Umar Musa, was arrested in Tashan Kano, Gwoza LGA on Thursday, June 17 with 8,000 capsules and tablets of Tramadol weighing 4.550kg.

This is as 32.182kg of cannabis was seized by NDLEA operatives along the Okene/Abuja highway in Kogi State from a commercial bus travelling from Lagos to the FCT.

Following credible intelligence, operatives also arrested 22-year-old Nwanbunike Chibuike with 19,576 tablets of Exol-5, Diazepam, Tramadol and Rohypnol as well as 7.9 litres of codeine at Ogere, Ikenne LGA, Ogun State, on Wednesday, June 15.

Mbugun, 33, who ordered the consignment from Onitsha, Anambra State.

The drug was concealed in a bag of gari meant for distribution in Gembu, Sardauna LGA, Taraba State.

Meanwhile, attempts by drug traffickers to export parcels of methamphetamine, popularly called Mkpuru Mmiri, concealed in cornflakes packs and body cream containers to Malaysia and Australia were foiled by operatives at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, and a courier company in Lagos.
